Abstract

The proposition that the so-called 'new' media pose both opportunities and threats for democracy has a relatively long and well established history. Framed within the crisis of democracy thesis this chapter examines the role media technologies (i.e. information and communication technologies) have played and could play in reinventing political parties.
