Abstract

Over the last three decades or so, the field of the history of technology has expanded tremendously in both breadth and depth. Researchers in the United States and other countries have produced literally thousands of books and articles, spanning a long chronological stretch from ancient civilizations up to the present. The growing sophistication of this work has established the history of technology as a recognized academic field, one firmly grounded in the broad discipline of history as a whole.
