Abstract:

Reviewing the development of California's Silicon Valley, from the now legendary meeting of Hewlett and Packard to the development of the Stanford Research Park to the near overnight success of Apple Computers, Intel, etc., the authors present a history of the development of the technology and the amazing individuals who created it, as well as a sociological study of that technology in its local, national and international contexts. They conclude with a thought-provoking assessment of the future of Silicon Valley, the capability of the Japanese to overtake the Americans and the changes to be seen in an "information society."
