Reviews & Statements

The purpose of this book initially was twofold: to assess the impact of e-business, and to provide two distinctive angles between private and public organizations. However, having looked at our contributors coming from 10 different countries with a wide array of e-business applications and implications on diverse organizations, we decided to group them into industries, and within them provided a public and private division. We believe that the changes reflected in the edited book provided a more richer picture and a chest of resources with concepts which may have already been published in various journals, but many of the perspectives are new, which makes this book both suitable for practitioners and academics at the same time. Twenty-four authors have contributed to this book, which are operating as either practitioners or academics in the fields, who are involved with various aspects of the impacts of e-business applications and strategies.

This resource presents case studies and reviews by international contributors from 10 different countries. Chapters are grouped in sections on e-business applications in higher education, e-business impact on public and private organizations, and e-business definitions and conceptual discussions. [...] Four US cases (two private and two public institutions) are presented, analyzing the application of e-business etiquette as part of decision-making procedures.

The individual authors provide extensive references in their respective chapters, and all the references are brought together in a compilation at the end of the book which in turn is served by a nine page index. The stated goal of the book editors is: ‘Our hope is that this edited book can partially open the doors for further research areas and generate new inquiries.’ This they have done through this small, albeit valuable contribution.
