Editorial Reviews

Review

The essays selected for this volume cover a well-distributed range of subjects, bringing history of technology and gender studies together with studies of consumerism, labor, production, race, and other topics. The pieces included are well-written, thought-provoking, and frequently just plain enjoyable. The collection will serve valuable scholarly purpose, helping both to establish where research on the relationship between gender and history of technology currently stands and to suggest promising directions for future work.

(Amy Bix, Iowa State University)

This excellent anthology should become a standard source for those interested in the history of gender and technology, as well as a widely used text for courses in gender studies. The selection of articles is brilliant. The volume is grounded in the mature historical scholarship published in Technology and Culture, and significantly strengthened by the inclusion of key articles from other sources.

(Eric Schatzberg, University of Wisconsin-Madison)

This book is exactly as the title states. The topics covered are varied and fascinating. The editors have done an excellent job of assembling a book that covers many forms of technology and the impacts these changes have had on men and women.
