Politics on the Web: A Student Guide is directed at those who want to be able to access politics Internet resources quickly and efficiently without needing to become IT experts. The emphasis throughout is on the location of high quality politics related Internet resources likely to be useful for learning, teaching and research, from among the billions of publicly accessible Web pages.Whilst the author has drawn on a large volume of technical literature, it is written on the basis of practical experience acquired over many years of using Internet resources in the context of teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the social sciences covering a wide range of topic specialisms, and in informing academic staff. In addition to extensive coverage of topics relating to the efficient location of files and Web sites, Part III provides a substantial and annotated list of high quality resources likely to be of use to students of psychology.The work is structured so that it will be found useful by both beginners and intermediate level users, and be of continuing use over the course of higher education studies.
