There are many publications that describe how society influences and indeed changes society. This book, however, focuses on the role of corporations and governments. It should make good reading for those who are involved in management and is aimed we are told, at government policy makers with interests in economic development, and also at private-sector managers who routinely make decisions to acquire and use information technology.
