"Stevens and McGowan provide an introduction to information systems for managers working in the public sector. The content and order of presentation are logical; an overview of management and systems considerations are presented first; then steps in systems design, implementation, and evaluation are discussed; and finally, futuristic considerations are presented in a readable, interesting style. The authors effectively demonstrate through three comprehensive cases the many variables that influence the design and use of information systems at the local, state, and federal levels. A strong point of the work is the discussion of security considerations in public information systems. Although a review of the theory of organization and management is presented, background in these areas is requisite for the reader. The book contains an excellent bibliography of current literature concerning information systems, and throughout the test other works are referenced to allow the reader to examine further topics. ...a well-written guide to information issues in the public sector." -- Choice
