Many challenges lie ahead in the development of a global information society. Culture and democracy are two areas which may be under particular threat. The book reflects on today's complex and uncertain cultural and democratic developments arising as a result of an increasingly global, technologically-connected world. In particular it focuses on the Internet, examining new metaphors for communication, defining the issues at stake and proposing options, actions and solutions. Among the issues discussed were: multi-cultural developments; cultural sensitivities and the involvement of cultural minorities; generation gaps; gender issues; technology access for the elderly and the disabled; technology transfer.

The dramatic advances in computer and telecommunications technologies such as the Internet, virtual reality, smart cards or multimedia applications are increasingly regarded as ushering in a new form of society: the information society. Politicians, policy makers and business gurus are all encouraging us to join the information superhighway at the nearest junction or risk being excluded from the social and economic benefits of the information revolution. Cyberspace Divide critically considers the complex relationship between technological change, its effect upon social divisions, its consequences for social action and the emerging strategies for social inclusion in the Information Age. Cyberspace Divide will be invaluable reading for those studying social policy, sociology, computing and communication studies.

With the emergence of global environmental issues such as ozone-layer depletion, the loss of biodiversity, global warming and acid rain, the role of economics both in the causes of these problems and in the development of policy options is being examined thoroughly. This new book will show what role economics plays in this regard. Also, this book will provide a critical analysis of some of the speeches given by Ricardo Lagos, President of Chile, between March 11th 2000 -- when he took office -- and September 2001, with a view to establishing how the issues of globalisation and national identity are tackled, by means of macro-strategies, topics and linguistic means of realisation. Contents: Preface; China's Opening to the Outside World with Facing Economic Globalisation; China's Industrial Policy and Participation in Globalisation; Globalisation, Hemispheric Integration and Beyond: Governance and Security Issues; Globalisation as War: Equivalence and Convergence in the Theory and Practice of Neoliberalism; Globalisation, Technology, and Emancipatory Politics: Towards a New Multilateralism?; Identity and Globalisation in the Discourse of the Chilean President, Ricardo Lagos; What do
