Participating in orgtheory.net thread I whipped up these resources which I thought ought to be useful here also.
I feel like there is a lot that is at least descriptive or celebratory of lowering the coordination costs for civil society or political organizations. You mean more rigorous, empirical research? And do you mean campaign organizations (as oppose to governing or politically engaged?)
A few things I pulled off my shelf-
Mousepads, Shoe Leather, and Hope: Lessons for Dean Campaign for the Future of Internet Politics Techout, Zephyr and Streeter,Thomas. Has stories from campaign and some framing/theory chapters.
Society Online Edited by Howard, Philip and Jones, Steve. Has a chapter on voting and Internet in politics 1996-2000 (wow! Pre-history!).
Globalization from Below: Transnational Activists and Protest Networks della POrta, Donatella et al. Has a Chapter on Networks and Organizing.
Causewired By Watson, Tom. Whole book is rah-rah on wired activism. HAs chapter on politics (6, I think).
The Media in the Network Society: Browsing, NEws, Filters, and Citizenship Several chapters on politics, political systems, case studies of other countries (East Timor, Portugal e.g)
Is any of this on the mark?
