Reynolds, Terry S.

SUMMARY

With some two million practitioners, engineers form one of America's largest professional groups; indeed, it is the single largest occupation of American males today. The rise of this profession and its place in American society provide the focus for this anthology. Spanning two centuries and the various subdisciplines of the field, these essays demonstrate the paradoxical role engineers have played in building (although usually not controlling) the infrastructure on which America's prosperity is based. This collection of seventeen essays traces the rise of the engineering profession and its evolving contribution to the development of America's material and economic success. Topics addressed include: *American engineering's birth from European traditions *Impact of science on engineering practice *Changing relationship between engineers and bureaucratic organizations *Growth of engineering professional institutions Thoughtfully organized and unique in its scope, this volume will be a welcome overview for both students and scholars of the history of technology. These essays were originally published in the journal Technology and Culture.Reynolds, Terry S. is the author of 'Engineer in America A Historical Anthology from Technology and Culture', published 1991 under ISBN 9780226710327 and ISBN 0226710327.
