This book describes how and why a combination of technological innovation, market strategies, and political entrepreneurship motivated developments, first in the United States, Europe, and Japan, and then in the rest of the world. Part I explains the political economy of domestic information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure policy. Part II investigates the political economy of global ICT evolution since the 1950s. Part III consists of three case studies that take a finer-grained look at global market governance. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in the book is presented.
