Product Details

Praise

“[R]eaders looking for an engaging contribution to the emerging field of repair studies will love this small volume. Henke and Sims introduce many of the current perspectives on repair, maintainers, and the important role they play in society. Furthermore, with their notions of ‘repair as maintenance,’ ‘repair as transformation,’ and ‘reflexive repair,’ they add an interesting new set of concepts to the discussion.”—Technology and Culture
