Lots of information in here for research, but it is pretty dry. Clearly written for an academic audience.

Great stuff on the period of WWII up until early personal computers. She is strongest on the post-war through the 1960s. After that, the research gets a little thin. There was a lot more going on than just integrated circuits in the 1970s. For example, ham radio might have seemed a little "establishment" and out of step with the times.

I thought the shifting marketing positions that the ARRL took to protect ham radio were really interesting. First, the war effort, then civil defense, then disaster preparedness. ( )
