The rapid development of the Internet and e-business has created not only lucrative economic opportunities, but also significant social challenges, with profound implications for individuals, communities and for our society as a whole. However, the social implications and challenges of e-business are still inadequately researched and poorly understood today.

Social Implications and Challenges of E-Business explores the profound social implications and challenges of e-business, investigates how the rapid development of the Internet and e-business shapes, and is shaped, by various social forces; and highlights the enormous difficulties and challenges involved in applying e-business technologies and principles in public services and other non-business activities.
