Editorial Reviews

Booknews
By highlighting progress in information technology and telecommunications and analyzing a variety of industries including financial services, manufacturing, and retail, contributors address how innovations in these areas are stirring firms and industries to react. Conclusions fall into three main themes: that the fusion of computers and telecommunications is already occurring, that the fundamental structure of firms is being altered because of this, and that the creation of new industries is imminent. Discussion then ensues on how firms should respond to these conditions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
