Full text not available from this repository.


Science and technology are now recognised as the crucial components of economic development in poor nations, the motors of growth in developing economies, and in contemporary advanced societies. Yet the relationships between science and technology on one hand, and between science-technology and economic modernisation on the other, are little understood and forever changing. This book is about the dynamic connections between science, technology and economic development from the eighteenth century to the present day. Extended treatments of Japan, China and India ensure that the text is not so overtly eurocentric. The book is designed for undergraduate students in economic and social history, science and technology studies and in economic development, as well as for use in more generalised courses in the social sciences.
