Part of the Routledge Studies in Development and Society series
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.
