9780330482097: The Edge of Now: New Questions for Democracy in the Network Age

In the face of new technologies and globalization, this book raises the key questions for democracy in the 3rd millennium. David Howell argues that politics will continue to revolve around the outdated theories and unreliable statistics of economics. Yet, new insights from the worlds of science and biology, combined with the realities of a privatized world order, have changed governmental and political processes forever.
