Information and Communication Technologies: Visions and Realities illuminates the social and economic implications of advances in information and communication technologies. It has been written and edited to reach a broad audience across the social sciences interested in constructive ways of thinking about the social dynamics of the revolution in digital media. Based on a decade of research undertaken by the UK's Programme on Information and Communication Technologies (PICT), this book explains * how social factors influence technological innovation and convergence; * why organizations seek to transform work, services, and management; * ways in which households domesticate new media; * how public policy andregulation shape the impact of technology on employment, media concentration, privacy, and access in an information society. The thirty contributors include leading figures in the field.

Beautifully produced by the Oxford University Press, carefully edited, and its 22 short chapters feature essays by a larger number of the most prominent researchers in the Information and Communication Technology areas ... It is the sort of book that will appeal to anyone seriously interested in ICTs and their pervasive influence in all advanced societies. Who can resist the considered views of leading researchers in such an appealing form in such an attractive-looking book? * European Journal of Communication *
This book provides an interesting and rich synthesis of some of the main results of the impressive amount of research activities promoted in the United Kingdom by PICT ... the book aims at helping the understanding of the critical options facing individuals and societies so as to make possible better informed judgements on the implications for policy and practice. * Journal of Research Policy *
This book provides an interesting overview to the whole range of ICT technologies and their context of use. The volume makes a useful contribution to both theoretical and practical issues in terms of policy formation. The significance of this book is in its contemporary importance. - Niall Hayes.
