Project Title: 
Information Warriors: The Business of Online Political Influence
Project Abstract: 

During my stay at the Institute for Advanced Study, I plan to work on my single-authored book project (provisionally entitled): "Information Warriors: The Business of Online Political Influence." In this book project, I am examining a range of new organizations around the world (for profit and not for profit) that are focused on promoting political causes through traditional and non-traditional efforts at internet traffic manipulation and new media agenda-­setting. While a number of scholars have looked at activist groups and the use of new media by politicians, as of yet, no one has examined the new and quickly expanding industry of actors that provide online influence services to these groups from an industry perspective.
