From Library Journal The Internet is political. So are television, radio, and any number of print publications. Punctuating his account with references to politics and social science, Davis (political science, Brigham Young Univ.) here takes a sobering look at the future, concluding that the spin doctors who control other media will soon control the Internet's political content. How this will be accomplished is somewhat unclear?the Internet lacks a Huntley and Brinkley or a Walter Cronkite. Davis concludes that the same powerful institutions that own and rule other media will come to dominate the Internet. Like many books in this category, Davis's effort suffers from the constant interplay among "Internet," "WWW," and "World Wide Web." But along with Graeme Browning's Electronic Democracy (Online, 1996) and Gary W. Selnow's Electronic Whistle-Stops: The Impact of the Internet on American Politics (Praeger, 1998), it remains one of the more interesting books of late that overlays political theory on top of the Internet.
