Visions of the Information Society
2003
The spectacular development of information and communication technologies (ICT) has radically affected the way in which humans work, dialogue with each other, and go about their daily lives. It has transformed the global economy, heralding a new and dynamic "information society". But what are the real implications of the transformation? Greater security risks? Access to information for everyone, everywhere? This publication, consisting of a book containing expert analyses of different areas and a CD-ROM containing extensive background resources, electronic versions of studies and web references, provides a global reflection on the information society. The authors are renowned experts in their respective fields, and include leading academics and consultants of international repute. The major themes covered are: the perspectives of industrialized and developing countries; network security; ICTs for education; and rights management.
