Online Deliberation: Design, Research, and Practice

Can new technology enhance local, national, and global democracy? Online Deliberation: Design, Research, and Practice (by Todd Davies and Seeta Peña Gangadharan)  is the first book that attempts to sample the full range of work on online deliberation, forging new connections between academic research, web designers, and practitioners. Since the most exciting innovations in deliberation have occurred outside of traditional institutions, and those involved have often worked in relative isolation from each other, research conducted on this growing field has to this point neglected the full perspective of online participation. This volume, an essential read for those working at the crossroads of computer and social science, illuminates the collaborative world of deliberation by examining diverse clusters of Internet communities.
