This is the kind of book which will be of most interest to political or social science students and those studying the effects of modern technology on established concepts such as democracy It deals with a crucially important subject the extent to which the result of traditional elections can be influenced by partisan internet activity Although this is a case study of the last US presidential election which returned Donald Trump to the presidency it has relevance to elections all over the world most obviously for the UK reader to the Brexit referendumThe book looks specifically at the probability that the US election result was affected by Russian interference to present a skewed or inaccurate representation of the facts and smear Trump's political opponents most importantly Hillary Clinton It examines both the various methods used bots trolls selective reporting on fake news outlets targeted social media ads etc and the statistical likelihood of these activities having changed the result of the electionIt does this in forensic and intensely academic detail and this is why I think the book will lose the general reader whatever their political persuasion Here's an example of a typical sentence from one of these passages just to give you an idea of the type of academic language being usedInterpolating the troll strategy which in the next sentence I will synopsize and insert in brackets into the findings of a state of the art meta analysis will illustrate the nexus I will posit between past research and my hypotheses about the 2016 troll and hacking effectsIf you can wrangle sentences like that one to the ground successfully this is the study for you; if like me they tend to give you a headache you will have to be satisfied with gleaning only the gist of the author's argument However it's good to see a contentious subject like this treated with sober scholarly method complete with footnotes graphs statistics a huge index and abundant appendices than with the kind of hysteria we're increasingly seeing everywhere from the streets right up to our political assembliesShe concludes that although those with entrenched views probably won't be affected by this kind of modern electioneering the point of the exercise is to sway the floating voters especially in the final few days of the run up to an election there were certainly indicators that this is what happened in the run up to the Brexit referendum in the UK; people are panicky susceptible to instant appeals to their fears and vulnerabilities and they have less time to go away and do some fact checking The last internet meme or troll post or fake news article they see before voting may have a disproportionate effect on their decision Kathleen Hall Jamieson gives many powerful examples of these types of last minute targeted appeals in the US especially in those all important swing states and also asks whether former FBI Director James Comey's investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails was also tainted by the effects of Russian machinationShe finally includes that there were sufficient numbers of susceptible voters to have altered the outcome of the election if their minds were to have been changed by Russian backed propaganda and other interference What she can not know for sure is whether they were However there is enough material here to concern anyone on either side of the Atlantic who has an interest in the survival of truly democratic elections the book ends with a summary of the various moves that have been made since 2016 to rein in the power of social media and better identify the sources of articles and advertisements of a political nature Much transparency is evidently needed
