About this product
- DescriptionThe Digital Divide refers to the perceived gap between those who have access to the latest information techlogies and those who do t. If we are indeed in an Information Age, then t having access to this information is an ecomic and social handicap. Some people consider the Digital Divide to be a national crisis, while others consider it an over-hyped nissue. This book presents data supporting the existence of such a divide in the 1990s along racial, ecomic, ethnic, and education lines. But it also presents evidence that by 2000 the gaps are rapidly closing without substantive public policy initiatives and spending. Together, the contributions serve as a sourcebook on this controversial issue.
