From the Publisher"Both general readers and military specialists . . . will find much that is informative and thoughtful in this generally superior collection of essays."
"It is the product of an unusual intellectual matrix."
-Technology and Culture
"Technology has been central to war from the Greeks to the present, from Archidamus, who reacted with alarm to the appearance of a weapon that could shoot darts through the air, to today's U.S. armed forces, which see a revolution in military affairs around every corner. Jensen and Wiest provide a highly readable yet sophisticated analysis of technology's place in modern warfare that incorporates industrial, political, military, social, and psychological aspects. It is a model of erudition and scholarship."
