February eBook of the Month: Science and Technology in World History

Posted on: Jan 30, 2008 @ 9:18:24 am

February eBook of the Month: Science and Technology in World History
by James E. McClellan III and Harold Dorn, The Johns Hopkins University Press
Now in its second edition, this may be the single most influential study of the historical relationship between science and technology ever published. Tracing this relationship from the dawn of civilization through the twentieth century, James E. McClellan III and Harold Dorn argue that technology as "applied science" emerged relatively recently, as industry and governments began funding scientific research that would lead directly to new or improved technologies.
The new edition reorganizes its treatment of Greek science and significantly expands its coverage of industrial civilization and contemporary science and technology with new and revised chapters devoted to applied science, the sociology and economics of science, globalization, and the technological systems that underpin everyday life.
Although not yet a part of the UCF NetLibrary eBook collection, the February eBook of the Month is provided through the generous support of The Johns Hopkins University Press. UCF Libraries owns a print copy of the first edition of Science and Technology in World History.
