about

India's tryst with the digital is an extensive project and while much media attention is given to flagship projects, the story is also of marginalised peoples, in cities, appropriating digital leaks, using the digital and thereby contributing to the digital economy. It is this battle between enclosing the digital and extending access to it that makes the story of the digital in India an exciting one.

Digital India is a case study-based, critical introduction to the theory and practice of the digital in social change. The volume-with its chapters on telecommunications, software, mobile telephony, e-governance, ICT4D, software patenting, public sector software and cultural piracy-offers an entry point into an understanding of the contested nature of the digital in India via an analysis of theory and practice.
