This book argues that in the digital era, a reinvention of democracy is urgently necessary. It discusses the mounting evidence showing that digitalisation is pushing classical parliamentary democracy to its limits, offering examples such as how living in a filter bubble and debating with political bots is profoundly changing democratic communication, making it more emotional, hysterical even, and less rational. It also explores how classical democracy involves long, slow thinking and decision processes, which don’t fit to the ever-increasing speed of the digital world, and examines the technical developments some fear will lead to governance by algorithms.In the digitalised world, democracy no longer functions as it has in the past. This does not mean waving goodbye to democracy – instead we need to reinvent it. How this could work is the central theme of this book.

What are the key challenges facing our increasingly digitized democracy, and how might we as citizens contribute to resolving them? This book explores these questions, adopting a multi-disciplinary approach that combines work from media studies, journalism studies, and political science scholars, and draws on trends in countries including Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, Egypt, and Indonesia. The book is divided into four main themes: (1) the impact of digital communication on politics and government; (2) the future of news and journalism in the network society; (3) the potential of digital media to enhance civic engagement and social inclusion; and (4) visions for the future of digital democracy.

Using a combination of case study materials, theoretical reflection and critical analysis this book explores four central issues for the study of new media and their impact on their user communities: 1 The impact of convergence on traditional media: explores the implications of mediaconvergence for everyday media use and for the policy context. 2. Activism: using a series of case studies this section explores how user communities with special access needs are ensuring they are not denied access to the emerging new media world. 3. Access: provides an overview of areas where theintroduction of new media has created debate about which social and cultural groups will benefit and how new media policy should be developed. 4. Participation: the emerging world of new media is inseparably linked to the commercialization of the internet and of mobile communications. This sectionexamines the implications of the resulting commodification of information for the way audience formations are structured and operate.

For decades, navies have been major sponsors of space developments for the purposes of secure communications and precise navigation: without satellite navigation a submarine-based deterrent force would have been impossible, and the accuracy of the Tomahawk cruise missile in the Gulf War was entirely dependent on such technology. This book chronicles these developments, describing the systems themselves and concluding with an analysis of future possibilities.
