Summary
"The history of technological change is an ever-growing tool box from which the contemporary engineer can draw. Innovation involves adventure and the highs and lows of success and failure are a catalogue of humanity just as other histories of wars and government. Here, the author explores, describes and illustrates engineering design and what conditions, events, cultural climate and personalities have brought it to its present state. The topics in this book are based on paradigm shifts, the contribution of individuals, important structures and disasters. In discussing these the author puts across the modern concepts of structure and the approaches used. It will thus prove an inspirational text for architects, engineers and the interested lay reader."--GOOGLE Books
