– Carmine Scavo, East Carolina University, USA

This is an excellent addition to the literature on e-government. Much of the work on e-government has tended to be "fluffy" but each chapter in this book has excellent and thorough coverage by experts who have deep knowledge of the areas they discuss. It covers a wide range of topics and would be an excellent book to use for a course on e-government.

– Bruce Rocheleau - Northern Illinois University - DeKalb, USA

The Pavlichev and Garson book discusses the promise and practice of E-Government in the US. The articles are current, informative, and cover a broad range of issues by a broad range of contributors. This is must reading for those interested in public information technology.
