I always enjoy indexing my own books, although it can at times be brain-numbingly tedious! So, I have spent the last few days proof-reading Reclaiming ICT4D, and at the same time constructing the index! It has taken much longer than I had anticipated, but I am delighted that it really does capture the essence of what I have tried to write about. It is always fascinating to see the juxtaposition of words: “holistic” next to “honour killings”; “operators” next to “oppression”; and “poverty” next to “power”… However, having just finished it, I now wonder just how many people ever actually read indexes!
Anyway, for those who want to know what the book is really about, I am therefore posting the index for everyone to see if their favourite ICT4D topic is included – and a glimpse of part of it is shared below! I very much hope that you find something of interest in it!
Now it will only be a few months for OUP to print the book!
