In Learning with Information Systems the author takes the developing world as the context and through a series of case studies develops a commonly used systems analysis methodology. He demonstrates how this methodology can evolve and adapt as new ideas become prominent. Issues of sustainability of information systems, participation in systems design and user ownership of systems are all examined. This book does not attempt to be prescriptive for all contexts nor does it focus on any particular technology. It addresses the essential questions and promises practical approaches which will help in the avoidance of the worst forms of disaster associated with the planning of information systems for developing countries.

It is widely claimed that information and communication technologies are transforming urban life and bringing about rapid economic and cultural globalization. This book explores the issues involved in urban planning in relation to computer-mediated communications and cyberspace, including urban planning, virtual and actual cities, and gender and the Internet. Running throughout is a tension between optimistic and pessimistic scenarios for the technocity. The authors address a complex set of questions, and move beyond the usual images of technological heaven and hell, and technophilia and technophobia, to bring together a number of differently informed approaches, to make sense of a field of dynamic and contradictory forces. (Adapté du résumé de l'éditeur).

' Measuring the sustainability of development is crucial to achieving it, and is one of the most actively studied issues in the area. To date, most studies of measurements or indicators have been largely theoretical. However, this book, a follow-on to Bell and Morse's highly influential Sustainability Indicators (1999), presents valuable practical advice on how to develop measurements that will work in real-life development contexts. It describes and analyses how to derive, validate and apply indicators in the course of an actual development project - in this case the Mediterranean Action Plan in Malta. The authors explain the trade-offs and constraints involved and how it is possible to combine the open-ended and flexible perspectives of sustainability with the more linear processes and fixed targets of specific projects through the use of pragmatic and reflective methodologies.
