Review Theoria Journal : The author combines his fluency in languages and the subject matter with original thinking and the courage to pose vital questions as to current public IT policy. Book Description To date, many futurologists have offered accounts of technology development based largely upon inferences from current trends and 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, evaluating proposals and channelling limited societal resources in a more sophisticated and informed manner. This book, which is the first of two to be published within the framework of the ongoing research project Technological Revolution as Political coup d etat, offers perhaps the most systematic and organised view to date of the seemingly chaotic jungle of technology development theories. It is therefore an important guide for university students, scholars and policy-makers interested in quickly acquiring an overview of the most central ideas in the field of technology policy analysis. Additionally, the author delves into crucial but rarely posed questions as to the interests involved in the development of today s public technology policy.
