This book presents the findings of a study which attempted to understand the role and implications of discourse in the implementation of two Information and communication technologies (ICTs) development initiatives in Jamaica using a Critical Discourse Analysis Methodology. Discourse, the unit of analysis, is an emerging buzz word in the social sciences and humanities today. The inclusion of discourse as a unit of analysis in various disciplines and, the use of several discourse analysis methodologies as discursive deconstructive tools, have proven to be a valuable way of understanding social, political and economic life within these disciplines. Discourse, however, has is not properly been introduced to the ICT for Development space. This book attempts to correct this oversight.'A highly original work' - Professor Ziauddin Sardar, Editor, Futures; Visiting Professor of Postcolonial Studies, the City University, London.
