Technology and particularly the Internet have brought about many changes in political campaigning.  Politicians and candidates use their own websites and social network profiles to get their message out.  Aspects of engineering, computer science, or mathematics can be applied to political campaigning and political communications.

Political Campaigning in the Information Age, edited by Ashu M. G. Solo and published by IGI Global, includes 20 research chapters from 33 researchers at universities and research institutions in 15 countries on different aspects of political campaigning and political communications with information technology, engineering, computer science, or math.  This book strongly increases our understanding of methods for political campaigning and political communications in the information age, the effectiveness of these methods, and tools for analyzing these methods.
