Image  My book The Myth of Digital Democracy was published in January 2009 by Princeton University Press. From the back cover: "The book debunks popular notions about political discourse in the digital age, revealing how the Internet has neither diminished the audience share of corporate media nor given greater voice to ordinary citizens."

The Myth of Digital Democracy has won both Harvard's Goldsmith Book Prize and the Donald McGannon Award for Social and Ethical Relevance in Communications Policy Research.
