AO: This 2016 book by Calestous Juma aims to demonstrate how different social systems responded to new technologies and how these co-evolved with social institutions. Juma highlights that the phenomenon of resistance to innovation is seriously under-researched and that greater attention needs to paid to better understand why promising innovations do not become successful.
