Abstract:

To date, many futurologists have offered accounts of technology development based largely upon inferences from current trends and even outright speculation. Mr. Njalssons research is however aimed at offering policy-makers more neutral, systematic and critical tools for demystifying claims made by interest groups, for evaluating proposals and for channeling limited economic and societal resources in a more sophisticated and informed manner. This no-nonsense textbook offers perhaps the most systematic and organized view to date of the seemingly chaotic jungle of technology development theories. It is therefore an essential guide for university students, scholars, journalists, administrators and policy-makers interested in quickly acquiring an overview of the most central ideas in the field of Technology or IT Policy Analysis. Additionally, the author utilizes his multidisciplinary background in Technology, Economics and Public Administration to delve into crucial but rarely-posed questions as to the special interests involved in the development of today's public technology policy.
