Read the book chapter, watch the one-hour-long video and answer the three questions below. In “The Machine that Made Us,” many technological (i.e., mechanical) aspects of printing are discussed and shown on film. Why the focus on machinery and technology? Is this the best way to convince viewers that the printing press is historically important?

Write the question number before answering each question
