Overview

The force driving globalization in the 21st century is undoubtedly Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Enabling instant communication over vast distances and in real time, ICT has far-reaching implications for transnational relationships. However, the core relationship between globalization and ICT, a major of inquiry, has hitherto been somewhat neglected and inadequately studies.

Focusing on this important relationship, this book emphasizes that increasingly non-state institutions, as opposed to the state, are transforming economics. The author also highlights the critical need for developing regions to shape ICT which can stimulate development and usher in the information age.
