Book Description

February 5, 2008 1403975213 978-1403975218
Information and communication technologies (ICT) enable citizens to communicate across state borders with greater ease than ever before, exciting much speculation about the emergence of transnational public spheres. This highly original work introduces this debate to International Relations, by investigating the socio-political implications of ICT in a global governance framework. Classic Habermasian theory is radically reconstructed to take account of contemporary trends in state sovereignty and global civil society. It is argued that if access is not widened and free speech not sufficiently protected, the early promise of ICT as a liberating force will be neutralized.

Editorial Reviews


"Communication is central to world politics yet curiously neglected in much of the orthodox study of international relations. Angela Crack’s work redresses that neglect making a compelling argument for taking new communication technologies seriously and their potential for mediating a more progressive global politics"-- Tony McGrew, Professor of International Relations and Head of the School of Social Sciences, University of Southampton,United Kingdom
