"Reformatting Politics" examines the ways in which new information
and communication technologies (ICTs) are being used by civil
society organizations (CSOs) to achieve their aims through
activities and networks that cross national borders. These new
ICTs--the internet, mobile phones, satellite radio and
television--have allowed these civil society organizations to form
extensive networks linking the local and the global in new ways and
to flourish internationally in ways that were not possible without
The book consists of four sections containing essays by some of the
top scholars and activists working at the intersections of
networked societies, civil society organizations, and information
technology. The book also includes a section that takes a critical
look at the UN World Summit of Information Society and the role
that global governance has played and will play in the use and
dissemination of these new technologies. Finally, the book aims to
influence this important and emerging field of inquiry by posing a
set of questions and directions for future research. In sum,
"Reformatting Politic"s is a fresh look at the way critical network
practice through the use of information technology is reformatting
the terms and terrains of global politics.
