Alex Roland

Published by the American Historical Association

SHOT Historical Perspectives on Technology

This booklet provides a thorough analysis of a set of relationships central to American history in the latter 20th century. Roland begins with an overview of U.S. industry and the military between World War I and the 1990s, focusesing on five transformations: civil-military relations, relations between industry and the state, among government agencies, between scientific-technical communities and the state, and between technology and society.
