Information Technology Ethics: Cultural Perspectives
A book edited by Dr. Soraj Hongladarom, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand
and Prof. Charles Ess, Drury University, USA

Introduction
Despite the profound disparities of various digital divides, 
information and communication technologies (ICTs) and their products 
continue their dramatic expansion throughout the entire world. Both 
the global reach of the Internet and the forces of globalization more 
broadly are increasingly expanding the use of ICTs in non-Western 
countries - so much so, for example, that there are now as many users 
of the Internet in Asia and the Pacific Rim countries as in North 
America.  Nonetheless, discussions of and scholarship devoted to 
Information Ethics in non-western countries are comparatively recent; 
likewise, discussions of and scholarship devoted to cross-cultural 
approaches to Information Ethics, especially across East-West 
boundaries, are only in their beginning stages. Hence, there is an 
urgent need for investigations into what the non-Western intellectual 
traditions have to say on the various issues in information ethics.
