The purpose of Rosenberg's "...previous book, INSIDE THE BLACK BOX was to break open and to examine the contents of the black box into which technological change has been consigned by economists. The economics of technological change is a subject that is still seriously befuddled by the failure to come to grips with the immense diversity of the contents of the black box. The present work represents a continuation of the intellectual 'unpacking' that was central to INSIDE THE BLACK BOX. This book attempts to show how technological change is generated and the processes by which improved technologies are introduced into economic activity. This is a far more complex process than it is often made out to be, largely because much of the reasoniing and modelling of technological change hopelessly oversimplifies its component parts. The process of technological change takes a wide variety of forms so that propositions that might for instance be accurate when referring to the pharmaceutical industry are likely to be totally inappropriate when applied to the aircraft industry or to computers or forest products. Professor Rosenberg pays particular attention to the nature of the research process out of which new technologies have emerged. A central theme of the book is the idea that technological changes are often 'path dependent' in the sense that their form and direction tend to be influenced strongly by the particular sequence of earlier events out of which a new technology has emerged.
