Information Systems and Global Diversity
Reviews and Awards
Review from previous edition 'By situating her inquiry at the intersection of global technical capacities and development shortcomings, Avgerou raises the ante on both subjects. Her approach does not give us easy answers but it does detect unexpected possibilities. A great book!' - Saskia Sassen, Ralph Lewis Professor of Sociology, University of Chicago, and Editor of 'Global Networks, Linked Cities'
7 the book represents a compelling and important work. The theoretical perspective it offers to the academic field of information systems is a refreshing challenge in a literature that has been too heavily populated by unambitious analyses of small problems using narrow frameworks. While the text is aggressive in scope - as indeed it must be, considering the problems it entertains - it is not diffuse. The ideas in it are drawn tightly together by a strong and consistent logical thread .the book should certainly grace the shelves of all researchers with genuine interest in information technology innovation and organizational transformation.' - Information Technology and People
