In The Chinese Typewriter: A History, Thomas S. Mullaney offers the first of two volumes exploring the global history of Chinese information technologies by focusing on the development of the Chinese typewriter. Challenging easy narratives and offering digestible insight into technological concepts, this is an incredible work of scholarship, writes Ed Jones, that is as much a history of the past as it is one for the future. The Chinese Typewriter: A History. Thomas S. Mullaney. MIT Press. 2017.
