Book Description

Technology and Society traces the history of developments in science and technology from the Stone Age to modern times. It analyses how cultural attitudes and values have influenced their development and use, as well as the ways that technology in turn has influenced our lives, morals and culture, for better and for worse. The book also looks at recent developments in information and space technology, and closely examines the many facets of our prospects for survival in a safe and sustained world. Students of science and the humanities, as well as general readers interested in the subjects will find this lucid, engaging text an invaluable introduction to this vast, exciting and essential topic.
