'Governing Electronically shows how e-government is transforming practices of government and citizenship today. At the same time, it insists that modern government was machinic long before the advent of computers. Capturing the novelty of e-government, while avoiding the hubris that plagues so much writing on the subject, this book will enlighten not just specialists but anyone interested in the genealogy of modern power.' - William Walters, Professor of Political Sociology, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada 'This book is important because it recognizes that technologies really matter in understanding governmental processes. Paul Henman demonstrates impressive expertise in both information technology and public administration in a major study which furthers our understanding of government in the digital era and highlights important shifts in policy and the changing nature of citizenship.' - Helen Margetts, Professor of Society and the Internet, Oxford Internet Institute, UK
