Riassunto: The Interaction between experimentation, change, and community

This resource reveals how scientific and technological advances depend more on societal needs and priorities than on the internal forces of the scientist/creator/discoverer. Each of the more than 900 extensively detailed entries connect a scientific or technological subject with its social causes and consequences. Coverage identifies how scientific and technological changes have modified our lives and emphasizes how outcomes have been both positive and negative, and sometimes even unexpected.

Among the areas covered are:
-- Agriculture
-- Biology
-- Communications
-- Construction
-- Electricity
-- Electronics
-- Energy
-- Food
-- Governance
-- Instruments
-- Materials
-- Mechanics
-- Medicine
-- Military
-- Photography
-- Production and commerce
-- Public works
-- Radio and television
-- Scientific principles
-- Space exploration
-- Transportation.

Sinossi: This three-volume reference presents science and technology in the context of historical and social dimensions. It deals not only with theories, discoveries, artifacts, and systems that have stood the test of time, but also with those that have failed. The boo features approximately 900 entries.
