Product Details


In this volume, Hicks has delivered a sophisticated work of scholarship: detailed, insightful, deeply researched…. But the book has a much wider relevance, too, which it would be unwise to understate. Discussing, as it does, the role of profoundly structural gender discrimination in the collapse of technical dominance by a formerly great power, this book makes very uncomfortable reading – on a number of levels.—Times Higher Education

Fans of the movie Hidden Figures may be interested in this scholarly analysis of goings on across the Atlantic, by an historian of science at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Her deep dive into ‘how Britain discarded women technologists and lost its edge in computing,’ the subtitle, is a sobering tale of the real consequences of gender bias—a problem that persists in many technical fields today.

Harvard Magazine

…makes a detailed historical and symbolic case for suppressed and unvalued women talent, and bad management for a whole country in a strategical sector.
