Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076193345X, Hardcover)

This comparative study of the political economies of East and South Asia and Africa offers new analytical and policy insights into the links between globalization and information and communication technology (ICT). The author explores the replacement of state institutions by non-state ones; analyzes the prospects of developing regions sharing the gains of globalization; and explains the relationship between new technology and development. He also demonstrates how new ICT policies can pave the way for innovations, increased production and rapid diffusions of ideas in technology. Key features of Globalisation, ICT and Developing Nations are: - it discusses the concepts and policies underscoring the shift from state to non-state institutions in furthering the impetus of globalisation and also its implications for development; - it explores the scope of different developing regions to participate in globalisation based on camparision of their experiences of growth and development. - it explores the ways in which policies on ICT can be both a challenge and a unique opportunity for paving the way to for development.

"Sumit Roy provides a comparative study of the political economies of East and South Asia (particularly India) and Africa which enables new analytical and policy insights into the linkages between globalisation and ICT." "With its original approach and fresh analytical and policy insights, this cogent and well argued book will be of interest to students and teachers of globalisation, economics, new media, development studies, politics and international relations. Policy makers, too - especially those in international aid agencies - NGOs and multilateral bodies will find it invaluable."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
