The Fontana History of Technology


Write The First Customer Review

This is a history of technology, of the transformation of the discoveries and inventions of pure science into the useful applications that make everybody's lives easier. In this book, the author recreates the sheer ingenuity which conquered the obstacles that time, space and motion placed before man, harnessing powers latent in water, steam, gas, oil, light, charged electrons, chemicals and wind.
