BOOK REVIEW • The Machine in Neptune's Garden: Historical Perspectives on Technology and the Marine Environment

John Knauss
First Paragraph

One measure of our science’s maturity is that there are now a small but growing number of historians of science specializing in oceanography. In the United States, they meet periodically at Maury conferences where papers are presented and discussed. This volume contains the results of Maury III held in June 2001 at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The subtitle, “Historical Perspectives on Technology and the Marine Environment” is an apt description of nearly all ten contributions that comprise this text.
