Cultural Babbage: Time, Technology and Invention

Edited with Francis Spufford
Faber & Faber, 1996

‘In Cultural Babbage, a fascinating group of academics and writers looks at interactions between technology amd culture… Invaluable for studies of the the ways these interact in eras of rapid change’. Times Higher Education Supplement.

‘A dazzling collection of overlapping essays about technology, culture and forgotten or imaginary histories… It’s hard to do justice to the collection’s dense web of offbeat connections, and the opening and closing essays by editors Uglow and Spufford provide even greater focus…. Essential reading in the ongoing debate about science and culture today’. Irish Times
