Newswise reports of an upcoming book examining the history of blogs and its effect on politics.
The book is called Blogwars, and is the latest project of David Perlmutter, associate dean and professor of journalism at the University of Kansas. Originally the book was scheduled to be released next year but has been delayed in order to include the effects of blogging on this year’s mid-term elections.
Perlmutter said to Newswise that it is a challenge to writing a book about blogs as the medium is constantly changing.
The book will in particular focus on the growing impact blogs have on campaign ads and fundraising.
