Arnold Pacey

SUMMARY

Most general histories of technology are Eurocentrist, focusing on a main line of Western technology that stretches from the Greeks is through the computer. In this very different book, Arnold Pacey takes a global view, placing the development of technology squarely in a "world civilization." He portrays the process as a complex dialectic by which inventions borrowed from one culture are adopted to suit another. Arnold Pacey is a physicist turned historian whose publications have contributed to the British appropriate-technology movement. He has written widely on science, technology, and agriculture. His previous books include The Maze of Ingenuityand The Culture of Technology.Arnold Pacey is the author of 'Technology in World Civilization: A Thousand-Year History', published 1991 under ISBN 9780262660723 and ISBN 0262660725.
