Product description


«‘The Permanent Campaign’ offers an important and provocative new perspective on the changes occurring within politics as it enters the Digital Age. Through a series of innovative analyses of popular online social spaces such as Facebook, Twitter, and the blogosphere the authors show how the Web 2.0 environment creates a more networked, transient and ‘moment’- based campaign environment that fundamentally challenges parties’ and candidates’ ability to maintain a coherent, durable and visible presence. The result is a new understanding of the notion of the ‘permanent campaign’ that moves it beyond the standard temporal approach adopted within political science to a more ubiquitous social and spatially embedded concept, in which ‘flux’ itself becomes the new permanence.» (Rachel Gibson, University of Manchester)
