Topics explored in the book

Some of the issues explored in Cybering Democracy include the following:

  • How space is political and how politics is spatial
  • The role of the body in politics and citizenship
  • Whether theorists of direct democracy have adequately shown why it matters if citizens can meet face to face
  • The ambivalent roles of anonymity and visibility, respectively, in (1) protecting individual liberty and (2) democracy and collective action
  • Precisely how cyberspace is spatial and whether it can contribute to a new theory and practice of democracy
  • The role of space in social change
  • The history and architecture of the Internet and characteristics of its online ethics and communities


Following this, I will be blogging occasionally on these related topics:

  • space/the spatial
  • the body
  • democracy
  • technology
  • access
  • terminology
