A cathode-ray tube, a cardiac pacemaker, an integrated circuit--these are the artifacts of the history of electronics. Even as museum pieces, however, they are able to provide us with fresh insights into what is arguably the core technology of the twentieth century. Exposing Electronics is a book for serious historians who want to look beyond their usual documentary sources. But it is also for anyone who is intrigued by the electronic devices that are woven into our culture (such as J. A. Fleming's valve, Earl Bakken's pacemaker, or the super-computers of Seymour Cray) and who sense that they have something to say about their own history. This series is sponsored by the Deutsches Museum, Munich; the Science Museum, London; and the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
