Hi all,

It is always nice to follow on ginats' footsteps! I just wanted to mention that the book "Mobile Technology and Social Transformations<https://www.routledge.com/Mobile-Technology-and-Social-Transformations-Access-to-Knowledge-in-Global/Felsberger-Subramanian/p/book/9780367545246> - Access to Knowledge in Global Contexts" co-edited by me and Stefanie Felsberger (PhD candidate in Women's Studies, Cambridge Univ), has been published recently by Routledge (UK), under the "Rethinking Development" banner.


The book investigates the ways in which the mobile telephone has transformed societies around the world, bringing both opportunities and challenges. At a time when knowledge and truth are increasingly contested, the book asks how mobile technology has changed the ways in which people create, disseminate, and access knowledge.

While this is not a computing-history book per se, it does trace the historical use of mobile telephony in more recent times, especially in recent social transformations. I think that it will be an interesting and easy read for the SIGCIS community.

Best Regards,

-Ramesh
