Synopsis

Over the past thirty years, the fundamental character of political

discourse has been transformed. As the influence of on-the-spot TV

coverage and opinion programs grew, print media - newspapers

especially - began to lose their dominant position in the

political landscape. More recently, Facebook, Twitter, blogs and

BlackBerrys have emerged as important tools for political reporting and

analysis and as platforms for the conduct of political campaigns. While

the Canadian party system has proved surprisingly resilient, the

rhythms of political life are now very different. A relentless, 24-hour

news cycle has resulted in the "permanent" campaign. The

implications of this new political style and its impact on political

discourse are issues vigorously debated in this new volume of How

Canadians Communicate, as is the question on every

politician's mind: How can we draw a generation of digital natives

into the current political dialogue?





With contributions from such diverse figures as Elly Alboim, Richard

Davis, Tom Flanagan, David Marshall, and Roger Epp, How Canadians

Communicate IV is the most comprehensive review of political

communication in Canada in over three decades - one that poses

questions fundamental to the quality of public life.
