From the Inside Flap
Through a combination of solid scholarship and widely differing historical perspectives, the contributing authors make convincing and often counter-intuitive arguments to explain the motives behind some of the most fascinating large-scale projects undertaken during the last 100 years. While scholarly in tone, this one goes alongside Uglow’s The Lunar Men and Johnson’s The Ghost Map for just plain good reading."Ken Phillips, Curator for Aerospace Science, California Science Center, Los Angeles

Excellent Anthology, really engaging collection of essays that connect culture to technology (which made it much more interesting to me than if it was just a straight tech focus). Loved it.
