Engineering: An Illustrated History from Ancient Craft to Modern Technology

by Tom Jackson Author

Science is always improving itself, at least that's how the theory goes. With the collective power of many minds and lifetimes striving for furtherment, we slowly gain small pieces of knowledge. Engineering, predictably, tracks the history of engineering, an applied scientific knowledge used to create life-changing machines and structures. With this book, you can see what specific thinkers and engineers did, the context of the world around them, and even examine the marvels of modern science.
