Inhaltsangabe: Political Science/Media Studies
A timely look at the ways new technologies affect public life and power relationships.
Moving from classical Greece to the present, Public Space and Democracy provides both historical accounts and a comparative analytical framework for understanding public space both as a place and as a product of carious media, from speech to the Internet. How, the authors ask, is the political process of representation-so central to democratic politics since the seventeenth century-affected by the explosion of speed in the media? These essays make a powerful case for thinking of modern technological developments not as the end of public space, but as an opportunity for reframing the idea of the public and of the public space as the locus of power.
