Description

Stanford historian Leslie Berlin has just published a sprawling new account of a relatively understudied period in Silicon Valley. Her book, Troublemakers: Silicon Valley's Coming of Age, covers a transitional age in the tech industry--from the late-'60s to the mid-'80s--when the company men of the semiconductor world were passing the baton to a new generation of countercultural upstarts and entrepreneurs. Troublemakers tackles everything from the roots of sexism in tech, to Apple's often overlooked third co-founder, Mike Markkula, to the rise of venture capital. She speaks about Troublemakers with David M. Kennedy, professor emeritus of history.
