The internet is changing the way we interact and communicate. But how is it impacting on more historically traditional institutions like the British Conservative Party? This book examines the role of specific internet technologies like ConservativeHome, Facebook, Twitter and WebCameron in the organizational culture of the Tory Party 2005-14.
Anthony Ridge-Newman has diverse expertise in academia, communications, politics and media. He conducted the ESRC funded research on which this book is based at the University of London, 2008-11. During that time, he was a councillor for Virginia Water and a parliamentary candidate for Ynys Mon |Anglesey. This first-hand experience was embraced in the book using ethnographic methods.
