Inventing Accuracy : A Historical Sociology of Nuclear Missile Guidance
Donald MacKenzie follows one line of technology-strategic ballistic missile guidance through a succession of weapons systems to reveal the workings of a world that is neither awesome nor unstoppable. He uncovers the parameters, the pressures, and the politics that make up the complex social construction of an equally complex technology.
