Technology and particularly the Internet have caused many changes in the realm of politics. Aspects of engineering, computer science, mathematics, or natural science can be applied to politics. Politicians and candidates use websites and social network profiles to get their message out. Revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, and protests and riots in numerous countries, have started largely due to social networking. Mainstream media no longer has a monopoly on political commentary—anybody can set up a blog or post a video online, and political activists can network online. This pivotal reference source serves to increase the understanding of methods for politics in the computer age, the effectiveness of these methods, and tools for analyzing these methods. It includes chapters on aspects of politics with information technology, engineering, computer science, math, online campaigning and fake news, from researchers at universities and research organizations worldwide.
