About this title

Synopsis:

The dot-com revolution has brought many advances before unimagined. Of them all, it may be said that none have surpassed e-government in attracting a significant number of researchers and practitioners from around the world. However, the question remains whether everyone is ready to join the e-government movement, or if some are just blindly following the latest trend.

Digital Solutions for Contemporary Democracy and Government touches on several key issues and challenges surrounding the recent e-government boom and offers practical solutions from those who have been a part of implementing e-government programs internationally. Due to its breadth of discussion on a variety of topics relating to the intersection of technology with politics, democracy, and government, this authoritative book is a valuable reference source for professionals, researchers, and students in the field of e-government, information management, or knowledge management.
