Abstract:

We are told that the industrial age is declining and the information age is emerging. In this new age our lives will be cleaner, greener, more pleasant, more intellectual, and perhaps even less manic because we will value ideas rather than things. In the cusp of this new era are we better off today than we were yesterday? Why has information, information technology, and the information economy and society become so visible and assumed so much importance in our daily lives? To answer these and other questions, The Information Society examines 19 countries, which are categorized as high-, middle-, and low-income nations by their Gross Domestic Product per capita, to define "Informatization" along three primary dimensions: infrastructure, economic, and social. Dordick and Wang take a retrospective look at the information explosion of the past 20 years to see where we have been, what have been the consequences, and where we are now based on the forecasts and predictions made over the past two decades. This in-depth study will be of special interest to students and scholars in communication studies, technology/information systems, political science, sociology, and management and organization studies. The Information Society will also be of value to development planners and decision makers.
