Some of the hype surrounding “e-commerce” and “e-business” has subsided in the past year or so, but the effects and the capabilities of the Internet and new information technologies are continuing to change business, government and other types of organizations in profound ways.

HR readers will find value in some of the books reviewed here because they offer considerable insight into how organizations are handling challenges in the electronic era. The authors also address organizational and people-related issues that must be understood and tackled in the transformation to Internet-based ways of doing business.

Other strategic topics covered are the creation of an innovation culture and juggling all the HR issues involved in mergers and acquisitions.
