Computer - Computer - History of computing: A computer might be described with deceptive simplicity as “an apparatus that performs routine calculations automatically.” Such a definition would owe its deceptiveness to a naive and narrow view of calculation as a strictly mathematical process.

In fact, calculation underlies many activities that are not normally thought of as mathematical. The book makes an attempt to shape the history of computing, develop a history for computer software, and even explain the structure of computing in general.

A major theme from this book is "computing's presence in the humanities": "For much of common practice is undocumented, and yet it shapes what is documented."Missing: France.
