About the publication

The information and communications technology (ICT) revolution that swept the world through the 1990s has impacted the economic, political, and social structures of countries throughout Asia. These have presented themselves both as digital opportunities as well as challenges. This volume presents a collection of papers by scholars on the new development paradigms afforded by this new technology, from the experience of the software capital of Bangalore to the policy dilemmas faced by transition economies such as Vietnam.
