"This chapter first lays out the current state of understanding of electronic government, because most of the attention to information and government in the last decade has come under this rubric. We then present our vision of an 'information government' paradigm, which focuses on the flow of information within, to, and from government. We conclude with an overview of the contributions to this edited volume."
