Globalization and global equity are built on the premise of peace. The causes of many divisions and tensions in human communities lie in the imagined or real gain of financial or material assets of some elements of the community to be at the expense of others. The global community however lacks clear definitions and methods of stability, whether political, economic, or social. Digital Bridges: Developing Countriesin the Knowledge Economy provides insight into the methods and theories behind the globalization of information technologies.
