Information and Communication Technology: Recasting Development

Kiran Prasad (Editor)
Synopsis Information and Communication Technology: Recasting Development sets out to illustrate the application of ICTs for recasting development in India and several other developing societies. This path-breaking book explores the applications of ICTs in the core sectors of agriculture, healthcare, geographic information system, networking, rural and industrial development. Another major focus of the book is the implication of communication convergence, the development of cyber journalism, electronic organizational communication, e-public relations, e-governance and e-democracy in the era of globalization. The book raises several fundamental questions on development policy and communication research and responds to the polemic issue of bridging the digital divide in India that can inspire the development efforts of several developing countries. The scholars of international strength who have broadened the ICT for development debate have great pleasure in recommending this book to academia, researchers, policy framers and professionals in communication and information science, IT, development studies, extension studies, rural development, development economics and planning and social policy. It is hoped that this book will be a valuable resource for future research and policy formation, management and intervention in national development.
