"This book provides a comprehensive roadmap that helps to understand the complicated and multi-faceted phenomenon of E-Business. It bridges real examples of the many ways E-Business is used to augment, substitute, disrupt, and dis-intermediate the normal practices of business with the relevant academic views of the same. The result is a powerful tool for practitioners and academics that allows the reader to drill down on these issues in whatever depth is desired." Thomas H. Brush, Purdue University

"This book is refreshingly well-written and thought provoking. Grounded in appropriate theory and literature, it provides a most welcome addition to the e-business literature." Professor Michael D Williams, Swansea University
