The impact of technology on society is clear and unmistakable. The influence of society on technology is more subtle. The 13 essays in this book draw on a wide array of case studies from cooking stoves to missile systems, from 15thA century Portugal to today's AI labs - to outline an original research program based on a synthesis of ideas from the social studies of science and the history of technology. Together they affirm the need for a study of technology that gives equal weight to technical, social, economic, and political questions.

    短版的"King of the Road"

    這本是論文集,有收錄許多STS經典作品,《Of Bicycles, Bakelites, and Bulbs》的精簡版,所以份量有作精簡化以方便教師在課堂上作介紹,若沒時間去閱讀上述那本書可以從這本入門。但還是建議學生去看精彩的原汁原味版。
