The Oxford Handbook of Information and Communication Technologies
Edited by Chrisanthi Avgerou, Robin Mansell, Danny Quah, and Roger Silverstone
The Oxford Handbook of Information and Communication Technologies is about the many challenges presented by information and communication technologies (ICTs). The authors are principally researchers in anthropology, economics, philosophy, politics, and sociology. The book sets out an intellectual agenda that examines the implications of ICTs for individuals, organizations, democracy, and the economy. The production and consumption of ICTs are becoming deeply embedded within our societies. The influence and implications of this have an impact at a macro level, in the way our governments, economies, and businesses operate, and at a micro level in our everyday lives. Explicitly interdisciplinary, and combining empirical research with theoretical work, this text is organised around four themes: the knowledge economy; organizational dynamics, strategy, and design; governance and democracy; culture, community and new media literacies.
