internal operations, and to translate the energy and enthusiasm generated by
candidates and political opportunities into the staple resources of American
Kreiss recently published a book titled “Taking Our Country Back: The
Crafting of Networked Politics From Howard Dean to Barack Obama,” in which
he asks how technologies have impacted opportunities for participation in

social organization made possible by new media rework our understandings and
expectations of the state, law, and politics.
