This volume presents a comparative study to evaluate the success of the implementation of e-government in the UK, US, France, Germany, Finland, Australia and Japan. The detailed study examines national e-government strategies and their institutional framework of coordination and cooperation by focusing on the relevant players, the interplay of administrative levels and the types of control used by them. Drawing on literature on comparative public administration and comparative law, this book makes an important contribution to our understanding of advanced e-government.
