Peddlers of Information: Indian Non-Government Organizations in the Information Age

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are widely heralded as an opportunity for the poor to have greater access to information that can help them escape poverty, as well as an important tool for development agencies. But as Tanya Jakimow shows, the consequences of the "information age" often deviate greatly from our image of an interconnected, modern world. Peddlers of Information offers a critical look at how local NGOs in rural India are using ICTs, particularly the internet—and the implications that this has for development work and ideas about poverty.
