In 1903, the Wright brothers' airplane, held together with baling wire and glue, traveled a couple hundred yards. Today, fleets of streamlined jets transport millions of people per day to cities worldwide. This is the world that Mowery and Rosenberg map out in "Paths of Innovation", an engaging tour of the intersecting routes of technological change and economic growth in 20th-century America. Diagrams & tables.
