About this book


Comparative E-Government examines the impact of information and communication technology (ICT) on governments throughout the world. It focuses on the adoption of e-government both by comparing different countries, and by focusing on individual countries and the success and challenges that they have faced. With 32 chapters from leading e-government scholars and practitioners from around the world, there is representation of developing and developed countries and their different stages of e-government adoption. Part I compares the adoption of e-government in two or more countries. The purpose of these chapters is to discern the development of e-government by comparing different counties and their individual experiences. Part II provides a more in-depth focus on case studies of e-government adoption in select countries. Part III, the last part of the book, examines emerging innovations and technologies in the adoption of e-government in different countries. Some of the emerging technologies are the new social media movement, the development of e-participation, interoperability, and geographic information systems (GIS). Integrated Series in Information Systems (IS2) strives to publish scholarly work in the technical as well as the organizational side of the field. This series contains three sub-series including: expository and research monographs, integrative handbooks, and edited volumes, focusing on the state-of-the-art of application domains and/or reference disciplines, as related to information systems. In a parallel effort - recognizing that some of the cutting edge research in IS comes from doctoral research - selected dissertations are also published in the monograph section of the series.
