Book Review: The Dynamics of Technology for Social Change

I’ve been sent news about the release of The Dynamics of Technology for Social Change, a book by Jonathan Peizer. The book is about ICT projects in nonprofit and development environments. The index looks quite good:

    Chapter 1: The Soros foundations network: Catalyzing Change
    Chapter 2: The Internet Program: Web Surfing a Revolution
    Chapter 3: AFS: Using Technology Strategically to Facilitate Change
    Chapter 4: Sector Dependencies, Collaboration Dynamics, and ICT Challenges
    Chapter 5: Marketing, Promotion, and Trusted-Source Relationships
    Chapter 6: Nonprofit Capacity: Issues & Promising Approaches
    Chapter 7: Sustainability: Balancing the Profit and Value Motive
    Chapter 8: Implementation Strategies: Pilot versus Mega Projects
    Chapter 9: Implementation or Evaluation: Prioritizing the Criteria for Success
    Chapter 10: FOSS in the Nonprofit Environment
    Chapter 11: The Donor-Advised Support Conference Afterword
    Appendix A: The Internet Program Projects


If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
