Reviews

"A brilliant historical and critical account of the effect of the artificial environment on man and of man on the environment, a necessary account, one for which we have waited too long in English."-- "The New York Times"
"The questions posed in the first paragraph of Technics and Civilization still deserve our attention, nearly three quarters of a century after they were written."--Journal of Technology and Culture-- "Journal of Technology and Culture"
