The undoubted strength of this collection of papers lies in the interdisciplinary, global, and humanistic approach that informs all of her writing about international information flows. It is refreshing to read work that declines to use the cliched assumptions and religious fervor typical of so much writing on information technology...she has a recurrent concern about building bridges between North and South when considering the role of information in economic, social, and cultural development. Another important thread running through the book is that of communication as a basis of trust and mutuality, and this is where Dosa's own experience and personality emerge most clearly. Important insights stem from Dosa's writing. * College & Research Libraries *
