The technical problems confronting different societies and periods, and the measures taken to solve them form the concern of this annual collection of essays. Volumes contain technical articles ranging widely in subject, time and region, as well as general papers on the history of technology. In addition to dealing with the history of technical discovery and change, History of Technology also explores the relations of technology to other aspects of life -- social, cultural and economic -- and shows how technological development has shaped, and been shaped by, the society in which it occurred.

Alexander Graham Bell, Elisha Gray and the speaking telegraph - a cognitive comparison, Michael E. Gorman, Matthew M. Mehalik, et al; on the origins of the suction lift pump, Graham Hollister-Short; technological aspirations and the motivation of natural philosophy in seventeenth century England, Alex Keller; count Theodore Batthyany's paddle-wheel ship, Walter Endrei; the kongsberg silver mines and the Norwegian mining museum, Bjorn Ivar Berg; does the development of mobility in traffic follow a pattern?, Hermann Knoflacher; the Greeks and the early windmill; Michael J.T. Lewis; faraday re-invented - moral imagery and institutional icons in victorian electrical engineering.
