In A Digital Liberia, Darren Wilkins, an accomplished ICT Professional with more than twelve years of experience in the field of ICT, describes the impact of information and communications technologies on the future of Liberia. Emerging from a fourteen-year civil war and more than 150 years of underdevelopment, poverty, and illiteracy, Liberia is presently behind the curve with respect to modern and emerging technologies. Even so, A Digital Liberia addresses six critical sectors in which ICT can play an important role: education, government, business, agriculture, security, and healthcare. Wilkins delineates strategies that will bring a paradigm shift in the Liberian society and identifies broadband through submarine fiber optic cables located in and around Africa, Africa, along with pointing out mobile technologies, open source software, cloud computing, and green IT as those technologies that will catalyze Liberia's entry into the Digital Economy. A Digital Liberia, one of the most optimistic literatures on a developing country, represents an unprecedented effort by an African-born author to outline plans for economic development through ICTs.
