Mechanical Metamorphosis: Technological Change in Revolutionary America (Contributions in American Studies)

Beschreibung

?York's convincing and clearly written analysis necessitates a re-evalaution of our understanding of the historical role of technology in the US. The American Revolution seems to have elicited a commitment to a technological republic, not just to abstract political ideals. In opposing restrictive British imperial policy, colonial Americans began to embrace the concept that up-to-date technologies would produce considerable political and economic influence. ... This important volume is an instructive complement to Silvio A. Bedini, Thinkers and Tinkers: Early American Men of Science and John F. Kasson, Civilizing the Machine. Highly recommended for college, university, and public libraries.?-Choice
