Ideal for students researching the interaction of technology and society, or just for the general reader with an interest in a particular technology, this series of short, accessible books tells the "life story" of the objects and technologies that have become so vital to our daily lives. Just as a good biography combines an analysis of an individual's personal life with a description of the subject's impact on the broader world, each volume in the series combines a discussion of technical developments with a description of the effect the technology has on the broader fabric of society and culture - and vice versa. Since each volume is fun to read and full of fascinating tales that both entertain and illuminate, the "Greenwood Technographies" series makes the life of technology come alive, while also providing readers with a profound understanding of the relationship of science, technology, and society.
