"We are in the midst of a global revolution driven by the convergence and proliferation of telecommunications and information technologies."
So begins this comprehensive guide to the changing world of international communications. But as "Global connections" quickly points out, the revolution is not taking place in equal measures throughout the world. For while new networks and services are proliferating in industrialized countries, a critical "information gap" is depriving many developing countries of the information they need for economic growth and social development.
Hence, the importance and value of "Global connections", which provides readers with a thorough understanding not only of the technological aspects of international telecommunications but also the political and socio-economic issues involved, both for industrialized countries and developing regions. With this book, you will find up-to-date information and insightful analysis.
Unmatched in the amount of detaled and comprehensive information it provides, "Global connections" is a necessary resource for telecommunications researchers and professionals concerned with international markets, global networks, policies and strategies, and for telecommunications planners and policy makers.
