The Shock of the Old: Technology and Global History Since 1900.

1 08 2007

I was reminded by Gustav Holmberg about a review by Steven Shapin that a friend of mine sent me a couple of weeks ago.  At the time, I enjoyed reflecting on pneumatic tubes for mail, but didn’t note it anywhere. So here comes a late notice.

Edgertons book seems interesting, I might have checked it out at the library, except the Stockholm University Library is closed due to sabotage. Let that sink in for a while… Sabotaging a library. Who does these things? Disgruntled student? Lots of overdue books?

Anyway, check the review out.
