Editorial Reviews


'The most recent US presidental election showed that voting behavior is far more complicated than expected; this book helps us to understand the digital tools citizens use to frame their vote decision.' - Sergio Picazo-Vela, Professor of Business Administration, Universidad de las Américas Puebla


'The radical change in citizens' access to specific and relevant information has profound implications for democracy. Soon, we may well feel that voting without searching for information on the internet is as irresponsible as making a major purchase without comparison shopping, or signing a binding contract without reading it. Google and Democracy makes a compelling, and reassuring, case for that future.' - Richard N. Engstrom, Associate Director of the Institute for Governmental Service and Research, University of Maryland
