Information Technology and Development: A New Paradigm for Delivering the Internet to Rural Areas in Developing Countries

Excerpt

Beginning with Rob Langham of Routledge, who supported this project from an early stage, I am deeply indebted, in one way or another, to quite a large group of people from both developed and developing countries. Listed in no particular order, the following deserve not only my sincerest thanks but also my admiration: P.G. Ponnapa, Vinamra Agarwal, Bruce Girard, Rajeswari Rao Pingali, Chulie de Silva, Terry Clague, John Daly, Michael David, Paul Meyer, Rajesh Rajora, Charles Kenny, Richard Tarboton, Nathalie Muller, Don Slater, Mike Jensen, Fred Noronha, Michael Minges, Silvana Lemos de Almeida, Peter Benjamin and Jan Boone.

I am also grateful to Corina Maas for typing the original draft and to Michelle Remme for her editorial work in preparation of the final version of the typescript. This work helped enormously at the end of the process, when disorganization and chaos tend inevitably to set in. The author and publishers wish to thank the following who have kindly given permission for the use of copyright material: The World Bank for permission to reproduce the Appendix to Chapter 2, the figure contained therein and Table 3.2 from M. Pigato (2001), 'Information and communication technology, poverty, and development in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia'; Tables 6.2 and 6.3 reproduced with the kind permission of ITU; Table 5.1 from Human Development Report 2002 by United Nations Development Programme. Used by permission of Oxford University Press, Inc.; The International Journal of Development Issues for kindly allowing me to reproduce a figure from my article in Vol. 1(2), 2002, entitled 'The digital divide between nations as international technological dualism' as Figure 2.1; The ITU for use of Table 6.1 which appears in Minges and Simkhada, 'Telecommunications in Asia', 2002, ITU News; Peter Benjamin for the use of Table 3.1, which he wrote on behalf of CommUnity.
