The Machine In America A Social History of Technology

Auteur: Purucker
Taal: Engels

Samenvatting

This text presents an analysis of technology's impact upon the lives of American women and men, their work, politics and social relationships as well as their influence upon technological development. The book describes the ways in which American industrial and agricultural technology began to take shape as it adapted and extended the technical base of the industrial revolution. The author argues that American technology has created a hegemony, not only over the way we live but over how we evaluate that life. He shows that such developments as scientific management and industrial research changed American's lives as much as the mass production of consumer goods such as radios and automobiles.
