Annotation

In this wide-ranging survey, Bowler explores the phenomenon of futurology: predictions about the future development and impact of science and technology through the twentieth century. Bowler explores how conflict between technocrats and their critics was presented to the public through case studies including radio, aviation, space exploration and genetics.
