Village Technology Handbook
The Village Technology Handbook has been an important tool for development workers and do-it-yourselfers for years. First published in 1963 under the auspices of the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Handbook has gone through eight major printings. Versions in French and Spanish, as well as English, are on shelves in bookstores, on desks in government offices and local organizations, in school libraries and technical centers, and in the field kits of village workers around the world. The technologies it contains, like the chain and washer pump, the evaporative food cooler, and the hay box cooker, have been built for technology fairs and demonstration centers throughout the developing world-and more importantly, have been adopted and adapted by people everywhere.
The original 1963 and 1964 editions published by Volunteers for International Technical Assistance are also on the shelf with the same Dewey #. Note the VITA name change when it was privatized away from USAID.
