This major new book contains contributions by many of the leading historians of technology. The contributors argue that culture, institutions and learning either made the way for, or blocked technological and industrial transformation. Their essays include broad comparative frameworks between Europe and Asia, and Europe and America, and examine the specific experiences of Britain, France, Holland, Germany and Scandinavia. Themes addressed include cultures of invention and the learning economy, technological inertia and path dependence, patents and product innovation, and technology, institutions and boundaries.

About the Author:

Edited by Maxine Berg, Reader in History, University of Warwick, UK and Kristine Bruland, Professor of Economic History, University of Oslo, Norway

Review:

'Maxine Berg and Kristine Bruland have drawn a stimulating and varied collection of learned contributions from leading scholars in the economic and social history of science and technology, and, in so doing, have pointed the way towards a promising new direction for research into the springs of invention and the dynamics of industrial transformation.' -- Paul A. David, All Souls College, Oxford and Stanford University

'This is the new "new economic history": learning from economics and cultural studies, prudence and love, to give the first believable account of that astonishing conversation, the Industrial Revolution.' -- Deirdre McCloskey, Project on Rhetoric of Inquiry, University of Iowa and Erasmus University of Rotterdam, The Netherlands

...it achieves what its editors hoped to: to introduce a social and cultural dimension... -- – Gillian Cookson, The Economic History Review

Many of the chapters are usefully cross-referenced and there is substantial evidence of editorial guidance. -- – Maurice Kirby, Australian Economic History Review
