The Tentacles of Progress: Technology Transfer in the Age of Imperialism, 1850-1940

Daniel Headrick, author of Tools of Empire, examines why the massive transfer of Western technology to European colonies did not spark an industrial revolution in those countries. Rather than spurring economic progress, he argues, the transfer of stock technology between 1850 and 1940 caused the traditional self-sufficient economies of the colonial regions to become mired in a state of underdevelopment, a legacy which burdens these countries to this day.
