Each chapter contains simple multiple-choice questions, questions based on still frame images, and questions involving clinical cases with moving and still frame images.

Chapter coverage includes: * Online fiscal transparency * Performance reporting * Improving citizen participation * Privacy issues in e-governance * Internet voting * E-government at the local level
With the passion of an Artist and the erudition of a man of letters, Pietros Maneos deftly lampoons the artistic and literary trends of the 20th and 21st centuries in this iconoclastic masterpiece. Blending humor and scholarly insight, he argues against the works of poets, Charles Bukowski, Allen Ginsberg, Frank O'Hara, and T.S. Eliot, thus challenging our society to begin a new literary future with a renaissance of beauty and a grandeur of aesthetics and emotion. Through this satire, he firmly distances himself from the modish movements of our times and lights the way for a new cultural age.
