Looking for good books on the history of technologies.
Basically, I'm looking for books like The Making of the Atomic Bomb, but about other modern technologies. Long, technically detailed, well-written, and engaging are all positives. I'm not too picky about what the technology is but I'm interested in "big" technologies from the last 100 years - histories of things like rocketry, nuclear power, integrated circuits, etc. are all good.
Bonus question: if anyone knows of a book on the history of accelerator design, that would be especially interesting.
