Description - A Companion to American Technology by Carroll Pursell

A Companion to American Technology is a groundbreaking collection of original essays that analyze the hard-to-define phenomenon of "technology" in America. Taking a broadly historiographical approach, twenty-one leading scholars explore important features of American technology, including developments in automobiles, television, and computing. They also examine the ways in which technologies are organized in, for instance, the engineering profession, government, medicine and agriculture, and analyze how technologies interact with race, gender, class, and other comparable categories in American society. Scholars of American technology, as well as students, journalists, and general readers will find this a compelling, fascinating look at America's machinery, industry, and technophilic culture.
