520 8  The information age has become a reality, and has brought 
       with it many implications for public administration. New 
       ICT's offer new opportunities for government and governing,
       but at the same time they pose challenges in some key 
       areas of public administration, like trust, or the idea of
       checks and balances. This book is an examination of the 
       developments and effects of ICT in public administration 
       over the last 10 to 15 years. It represents a re-visiting 
       of the 1998 IOS Press publication 'Public Administration 
       in an Information Age: A Handbook'. As a point of 
       departure, the authors of this new book have chosen the 
       speed of the succession of theoretical approaches, 
       represented by the 'phase of theories' which has appeared 
       since 1998. This approach, which reflects that of the 1998
       handbook, avoids the impression of technological 
       determinism and provides an opportunity to focus on the 
       phases of theory and technological developments. The book 
       is divided into five sections. The first section examines 
       key issues, and the second focuses on aspects of 
       democracy. In the third section, the focus shifts towards 
       structural conditions; the conditions that public 
       administration has to meet in order to maintain its 
       effectiveness and its legitimacy in the information age. 
       Section four addresses some objects of implementation, 
       like IT-inspired redesign, HRM and the phenomenon of 
       Street Level Bureaucrats. Finally, the last section offers
       some concluding thoughts.
