– Hakikur Rahman, SDNP, Bangladesh

Technical, business, and political fields are represented, as well as Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, in discussions of how advanced computer management of information by governments impacts universal access to social services; security, safety, and trust; electronic governance and artificial intelligence; and virtual communities and cases.

– Book News (May 2009)

This collection discusses data mining as a topic in information technology and as a tool to obtain information for making decisions. The book focuses on the data mining and knowledge management implications that lie within online government.

– The Communications Initiative Network (May 2009)

Within the chapters a wide variety of issues concerning data mining and knowledge management [are] covered, such as frameworks for data mining and knowledge management, as well as knowledge management in e-government. Data mining challenges in this context, as well as knowledge management portals for empowering citizens and societies and the discovery guideline compliance in health services are also covered. ... What I did find useful was the detailed table of contents followed by a preface setting out the rationale for the book and its organisation and the extensive list of references at the end of each chapter.
