The role played by technology in transforming human societies has been a preoccupation of the modern period. Technology and Change in History is a peer-reviewed* series of monographs which surveys the development of technology from a variety of different historical perspectives. Each volume aims to present to scholars, graduate students and non-specialists alike the current state of knowledge in the field. Earlier volumes in the series have focused on the Ancient Near East and the Greco-Roman World, as well as the medieval and early modern periods. Over the coming years, the time period and geographical coverage of the series will be extended to encompass the prehistoric and modern periods, as well as Asia, Africa, the Americas and Oceania.
Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Stefan Einarson or to one of the series editor: Adam Lucas (University of Wollongong).
