Communications and Information in China is a focused analysis of the four fundamentals of the Chinese communications and information sector: dynamic landscape, which includes, most importantly, status, trends, directions, initiatives and characteristics of the Chinese IT and communications industries; policy and regulatory framework, which represents a very hard-to-understand mish-mash of the Chinese political and regulatory structure that has significant impact on where, how and what Chinese IT related industries are heading to; ten most crucial regulatory and strategic issues that derive from China's domestic, political, economic and technological realities and controversies; and foreign involvement, which covers high stakes, critical challenges and contextual forces that international companies face. In-depth discussion also digs into what implications China's telecommunications industry reform and its WTO accession will have on foreign players who are involved in China's enormous but complex IT and communications market.
In recent years, China has experienced a revolution in information and communications technology (ICT), in 2003 surpassing the USA as the world’s largest telephone market, and as of February 2008, the number of Chinese Internet users has become the largest in the world. At the same time, China has overtaken the USA as the world’s biggest supplier of information technology goods. However, this transformation has occurred against the backdrop of a resolutely authoritarian political system and strict censorship by the Party-state. This book examines China’s ICT revolution, exploring the social, cultural and political implications of China’s transition to a more information-rich and communication-intensive society. The pace of the development of ICT in China has precipitated much speculation about political change and democratisation. This book explores the reality of ICT in China, showing clearly that whilst China remains a one-party state, with an ever-present and sophisticated regime of censorship, substantial social and political changes have taken place. It considers the ICT revolution in all its aspects, outlining the dominant trends, the impact on other countries of China as an ICT exporter, strategies of government censorship and use of ICT for propaganda, the implications of censorship for Chinese governance, the political implications of internet culture and blogging, and the role of domestic and foreign NGOs. Overall, this book is a vital resource for anyone seeking to understand a rapidly transforming China, both today and in the years to come.
China's development from a traditional society to a technologically advanced, completely modern republic has been rapid. Due to developments since the mid-1980s, Chinese daily life for many has jumped directly from that constrained by an agricultural economy to that liberated by the information age. This volume chronicles these changes and their impact upon mass communication. It looks closely at Chinese newspaper reports and television programmes and listens to government officials and people in the street, providing readers with an insider's view of the current state of communication in China, from the political to the personal.
The report first summarizes the key findings from the following three studies in three provinces (Guizhou, Jilin, Shandong): (a) a demand survey to assess rural ICT access and attitudes; (b) a library study including scoping the status of ICT use in rural libraries; and (c) a limited impact evaluation to examine how ICT interventions have affected rural uers. Then the report addresses the challenges and policy recommendations of ICT use in the Chinese Countryside.
"Military Communications: From Ancient Times to the 21st Century" is the first comprehensive reference work on the applications of communications technology to military tactics and strategy--a field that is just now coming into its own as a focus of historical study. Ranging from ancient times to the war in Iraq, it offers over 300 alphabetically organized entries covering many methods and modes of transmitting communication through the centuries, as well as key personalities, organizations, strategic applications, and more. "Military Communications" includes examples from armed forces around the world, with a focus on the United States, where many of the most dramatic advances in communications technology and techniques were realized. A number of entries focus on specific battles where communications superiority helped turn the tide, including Tsushima (1905), Tannenberg and the Marne (both 1914), Jutland (1916), and Midway (1942). The book also addresses a range of related topics such as codebreaking, propaganda, and the development of civilian telecommunications.
The two volume set, CCIS 288 and 289, constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the First International Conference on Communications and Information Processing, ICCIP 2012, held in Aveiro, Portugal, in March 2012. The 168 revised full papers of both volumes were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. The papers present the state-of-the-art in communications and information processing and feature current research on the theory, analysis, design, test and deployment related to communications and information processing systems.
Offers current and in-depth analysis of many often-overlooked subjects and controversial areas in the field of Chinese communication.
