Summary expansion
Volume 1 looks at the introduction, adoption, and utilization of ICTs at the community level. In various contexts -- geographical, technological, socioeconomic, cultural, and institutional -- the book explores the questions of community participation. It looks at how communities in sub-Saharan Africa have reacted to the changes brought about by the introduction of these new ICTs and, in detail, presents both the opportunities and the challenges that ICTs present for community development. The book will be useful for both researchers and development practitioners active, or just embarking upon, an "ICT for development" program. It will also be a very useful reference tool not only for academics but also for policymakers, decision-makers, and development professionals interested in the issue
