In the time between the mid-1700s and today, technology, the economy, and society along with it have changed dramatically, going from largely agrarian to information based. With full-color photographs, The Rise of Technology describes in easy-to-follow detail how this change happened, from the birth of the Industrial Revolution in Great Britain to the information age, as well as the history of the computer.
