Information Technology Ethics: Cultural Perspectives
A book edited by Dr. Soraj Hongladarom, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand
and Prof. Charles Ess, Drury University, USA

Despite the profound disparities of various digital divides, information
and communication technologies (ICTs) and their products continue their
dramatic expansion throughout the entire world. Both the global reach of
the Internet and the forces of globalization more broadly are increasingly
expanding the use of ICTs in non-Western countries - so much so, for
example, that there are now as many users of the Internet in Asia and the
Pacific Rim countries as in North America. Nonetheless, discussions of and
scholarship devoted to Information Ethics in non-western countries are
comparatively recent; likewise, discussions of and scholarship devoted to
cross-cultural approaches to Information Ethics, especially across
East-West boundaries, are only in their beginning stages. Hence, there is
an urgent need for investigations into what the non-Western intellectual
traditions have to say on the various issues in information ethics.
