E-Government in China : Technology, Power and Local Government Reform, Hardback Book

E-Government in China : Technology, Power and Local Government Reform Hardback

Part of the China Policy Series series


This book looks at how information and communication technology and e-government influences power relations in public administration in China.

It highlights the role of technology in combating corruption, and clarifies the interplay between ideas, institutions and technologies in shaping the foundation for organisational change.

Using fieldwork based case studies, the book provides an incisive view into the working processes of the Chinese administration previously inaccessible to research.

It challenges the high expectations for the transformative potential of information technology, and is a valuable contribution to the debate on Chinese reforms.
