Digital Politics in Canada: Promises and Realities

Front Cover
Tamara Small, Harold J. Jansen
University of Toronto Press, 2020 - Political Science - 328 pages
"Digital Politics in Canada addresses a significant gap both in the scholarly literature on media in Canada and Canadian political science. Using a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, historical, and focused analysis of Canadian digital politics, this book covers the full scope of actors in the Canadian political system, including traditional political institutions of the government, elected officials, political parties, and the mass media. At a time when issues of inclusion are central to political debate, this book features timely chapters on the rapid digitization of Indigenous people, women, and young people, and takes an in-depth look at key issues of online surveillance and internet voting. Ideal for a wide-ranging course on the impact of digital technology on the Canadian political system, this book fills a gap with Canadian coverage that encourages students to engage critically."--
