Lemelson Center Studies in Invention and Innovation series

Since 1995, the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center has been investigating the history of invention and innovation from an interdisciplinary perspective. Books in the Lemelson Center Studies in Invention and Innovation extend this work to enhance public understanding of humanity’s inventive impulse. Authors in the series raise new questions about the work of inventors and the technologies they create, while stimulating cross-disciplinary dialogue. By opening channels of communication between the various disciplines and sectors of society concerned with technological innovation, the Lemelson Center Studies advance scholarship in the history of technology, engineering, science, architecture, the arts, and related fields, and disseminate it to a general interest audience.

Series editor: Joyce Bedi, Arthur Daemmrich, and Arthur P. Molella
