Local Electronic Government is one of two volumes presenting a comparative study of the implementation of electronic government. This particular volume compares and assesses attempts to create efficient and user-friendly electronic government at a local, municipal level, analysing the strategies and technologies applied, and the applications realized in order to do so. It investigates both how to implement sucessful e-government within and among the various administrative levels and the potentials and limits of transferring best practice to under-performing cities. This book includes new empirical research on e-government within the USA, the UK, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Japan. It will appeal to students and researchers of electronic government and public administration in general.
