Description

The technological revolution in shipbuilding in the early twentieth century had a great impact on the military, industrial, commercial worlds. Matsumoto focuses on the relationship between this revolution and the structure and function of 'technology gatekeepers' during the transfer of marine science and technology from Britain to Japan.

"This is an important contribution by an equally important scholar... Matsumoto's work clearly situates Japan's turn-of-the-century experiences in shipbuilding and in scientific and technological development within the larger literature of science, technology, and society." - David G. Wittner, Utica College
