There is a full case study: 'Community Development And
Democratisation Through Information Technology: Building the New
South Africa' in the recently-published 'Reinventing Government in the
Information Age' (Routledge, 0-415-19037-1).  The book also includes a
case study on the use of IT in government reform in Uganda, Ghana and
Zimbabwe.  Additionally, there is a case analysis of the relationship
between ICT and democracy.
