Th is work is divided into three parts, which the authors hope will enable the reader to more easily fi nd topics of interest. Th e fi rst part consists of two chapters concerning new information and communication technologies. Th e main aim of the authors is to present the most recent information regarding the internet as a means of communication and the diverse uses and applications of the Web. Here the reader will also fi nd a chapter with a more detailed presentation of certain new communication tools and technologies used in political and social activity. Th e second part focuses on issues of political communication, and the changes resulting from the increasingly common use of new communication technologies by both the authors of political discourse and their audiences. Th e social aspect of new technologies is discussed in the third part of the book. In numerous researches dealing with the issue of the relation between the use of new information and communication technologies and the level of involvement in social and political life, two main opinions may be discerned. Firstly, there are those who do not attach great importance to new technologies and deny that there is a link between these technologies and social and political involvement. Th e reader will fi nd a great deal of information regarding the activities of the participants of civic society – in particular, social movements, but also non-governmental organizations – in the environment of new information and communication technologies.
