Tells the story of 18th- and 19th-century engineering pioneers whose discoveries revolutionized commerce, industry, and world history, describing landmark developments such as the steamboat, electric power, and the telegraph from an engineering rather than a social history perspective. Focuses on engineering formulas that made each development possible, and explores the political and social conditions surrounding the inventions. For students and general readers. Annotation c.
