Exporting Communication Technology to Developing Countries analyzes the economic, cultural, educational, and political implications of exporting information technology to Africa. Emmanuel K. Ngwainmbi tackles the numerous complexities related to the development of African telecommunications. He not only presents the technological aspects of telecommunications, but effectively depicts the cultural implications that must be considered. Ngwainmbi investigates and evaluates the history of African telecommunications, clearly showing the path that has led to its present state. He then assesses the potential for development within the countries of Africa upon the influx of technology from the outside world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
When I read a book, I look for information which can educate, inspire, inform and persuade me. This book has certainly done that and more. . . . It is well-written and well-researched and it belongs on the college library and personal shelves. It alsobelongs on the desk of a corporate executive who is involved in international business ventures and aspirations. -- Wilfred Difon
Nothing has been more timely to Africa's economic emancipation than the bunch of constructive ideas propounded by Dr. Ngwainmbi. -- Tim Johnson
. . . the overall analysis of the African situation in relation to communication technology is of high quality. * Canadian Journal of Communication *
Because its focus is a new research area, that of communication technology and development, and because the author himself comes from the targeted continent of this analysis, the book needs to be read by scholars and business-persons, as well as by neophytes. -- Christian Agbobli
