Governing in the Information Age

Open University Press, 1998 - 196 páginas
Provides a critical assessment of the significance of the so-called information age to contemporary government, taking into account various perspectives on the relationship between information technology and social change in the context of British governance. In particular, the volume assesses current debates on the New Public Management, the reinvention of government, the new public consumerism and "electronic democracy" in light of these perspectives. It also evaluates policy stances towards the "information superhighway" and the likely effects on future public services. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
