Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The speed and cost effectiveness of new information technology has prompted many to view these innovations as a panacea for social and economic development. However, such a view flies in the face of continuing inequities in education, health, food, and infrastructure. This volume explores these issues along with questions of access, privilege, literacy, training, and the environmental and health effects of information technologies in the developing world arguing that a higher level of development does not always result from a higher level of technologization.
