Floriana Fossato and John Lloyd with Alexander Verkhovsky. :The Web that Failed.; A Book by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism

The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism (RISJ) published a study on the question of how opposition politics and independent initiatives are failing on the internet in Russia.

The research is based on a detailed study of three significant websites over a crucial election period, and argues that in Russia the hopes of 'technological liberation' have not been realised. 'There is no short cut,' the authors conclude, 'for which the code is www.'

The PDF version of the book is available on the RISJ website.
