One of the first books published on the history of women and technology this text laid the groundwork for decades of impressive and increasing scholarship in this field. An edited collection of eleven essays based on scholarly research, it explores many of the ways women have affected technological change historically and how technology has impinged on them. Both European and American topics, from the eighteenth century into the twentieth, are included, although the United States in the last 100 years is the focus.
