' ... this is an excellent volume that provides scholars and students alike with a wealth of new empirical material and theories concerning the relative impact of the new communication technologies on the modern political communication processes.' Mark Wheeler, London Guildhall University 'Nearly all readers will find something of interest in this book ... the questions raised by Mediated Politics are of first importance.' International Journal of Public Opinion Research 'This is an interesting book and one that should be read by anyone who is interested in politics and in particular by political scientists in the field of political dynamics, politicians, communication specialists and students of communication in general. As expected, with so many authors participating, diverse views are reflected in the contents. this is in the book's favour and it provides a clear indication that the editors did not try to force the contents into a particular paradigm ... Hopefully, this book will inspire more attention to media in politics.' Politica
