Book Description:

A Companion to American Technology is a groundbreaking collection of original, historiographical essays that analyze the hard-to-define phenomenon of "technology" in America. Over 20 expert scholars discuss the most important products of American technology, such as the automobile, television, and computers. The essays address ways in which technologies are organized in the engineering profession, government, medicine, and agriculture. The book also covers how technologies interact with other organizing structures in our society, like race, gender, and class. Each essay in this Companion presents a narrative history of its topic as it developed in twentieth-century America. These narratives give readers a clear, concise, and authoritative account of their subjects. Included with the essays are an introductory essay and bibliographic references that alert the readers to alternative interpretations, closely related topics, and sources of further information. Readers will find this a compelling, fascinating look at America's machinery, industry, and technophilic culture.

Anbieterinformationen

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
