The Digital Hand, Vol 3

How Computers Changed the Work of American Public Sector Industries

First Edition

James W. Cortada

The third volume of The Digital Hand describes how computers were used in all of the American public sector industries over the past half-century, in order to determine what were the critical uses of computing technologies, how these technologies came into these industries, and how they were changed by it. Cortada claims that computing profoundly changed the nature of work in these public sector industries, creating the bedrock of the Information Age.
