Time, technology and social structure

2 Mar 2007
Description

A technology is a means of satisfying human wants.

Jonathan Gershuny looks at time diary surveys to provide a means of looking at the two complimentary aspects of technologies in a more evenly balanced way - and in doing so to develop a new approach to understanding social structure.
