Kevin,

For an interesting and theoretically informed exploration of the whether 
there is a global civil society presently in existence, see John Keane's 
'Global Civil Society? (Cambridge, 2003).

On a more 'practical' note, I like Peter Hajnal's (Ed.), 'Civil Society 
in the Information Age' (Ashgate, 2002), which is basically composed of 
'case studies' of the IT-use of NGOs such as Amnesty, Oxfam, and similar.

I'd also suggest checking out the Blacwell's journal 'Global Networks: A 
Journal of Transnational Affairs,' which also publishes the kind of 
stuff you seem to be after.

Best,
Maura
