Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contains ten essays which resulted from an April 1995 conference sponsored by the Center for Medieval Studies at Pennsylvania State University. The authors do more than just redeem the Middle Ages as a time of considerable technological development; they also show the many ways in which the technologies of building construction, manufacture, and metallurgy shaped and were in turn shaped by broader forces of culture, social identity, political ambition, and the local environment. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
