Gray, Chris H.
The relationship between humans and technologies is incredibly complex and significant, as the eleven fascinating case studies in this volume demonstrate. Various historiographical approaches are used to illuminate such different topics as the movie colorization controversy, public debates over nuclear waste, teaching writing, the story of water power on the Sugar River in New Hampshire, the changes high technology has made in the nursing profession, cyborgs, the psychosociological significance of electrification and cyberspace, manifestos as technology, the role of history in NASA policy making, and the relationship between toy making and the civil rights movement. All the essays are readable and enlightening. They were collected to show how central the history of technology is in many fields, and to seduce the readers into their own explorations. The book includes an introduction by the noted historian Carroll Pursell, an afterword by the editor, and a bibliography of technohistory.Gray, Chris H. is the author of 'Technohistory Using the History of American Technology in Interdisciplinary Research', published 1996 under ISBN 9780894648533 and ISBN 0894648535.
