Rescuing Prometheus: Four Monumental Projects that Changed Our World

"A infrequent perception into business making plans on a big scale. .. first-class. " --The Economist

Rescuing Prometheus is an eye-opening and marvelously informative examine a number of the technological initiatives that assisted in shaping the trendy international. Thomas P. Hughes makes a speciality of 4 postwar initiatives whose vastness and complexity encouraged new expertise, new corporations, and new administration kinds. the 1st use of desktops to run structures used to be constructed for the SAGE air protection undertaking. The Atlas missile venture was once so advanced it required the improvement of platforms engineering with the intention to whole it. The Boston relevant Artery/Tunnel venture demonstrated structures engineering within the complicated crucible of a big scale civilian roadway. and eventually, the origins of the net fostered the collegial administration type that later could take over Silicon Valley and outline the fashionable computing device undefined. With prepared perception, Hughes tells those interesting tales whereas delivering a riveting historical past of recent expertise and the administration structures that made it possible.

Thomas P. Hughes is Emeritus Mellon Professor of the heritage and Sociology of technological know-how on the collage of Pennsylvania and a Fellow of the yank Academy of Arts and Sciences. His books contain American Genesis: A Century of Invention and know-how. at the moment a individual vacationing Professor at MIT, he lives in Philadelphia.
