Description
"Technology and American History" explores the technological dimension of American life from the birth of American industry in the late eighteenth century to the massive industrial systems of the late twentieth century. Emphasizing a societal context for technology, this carefully organized collection demonstrates both the manner in which cultural, political, and economic forces shape innovation and the ways that technology has influenced society and shaped its values. Individual essays explore the importance of in American the role of the federal government in regulating new modes of transport, the development of interchangeable parts in production, the innovation, the notion of technological systems, and the relationship between technological change and work in the factory, on the farm, and in the home.

These two volumes of Technology and Culture articles represent a set of interconnected anthologies that fill a void in the teaching of undergraduate technology studies.
