Description
 
This fascinating history of the electric revolution recounts how, over the course of a century & a half, the force was harnessed, by means of a series of brilliant experiments & ingenious devices, & transformed from a mystery into a mighty & ubiquitous resource. Inventors from both sides of the Atlantic contributed to this extraordinary revolution. Most were dedicated, self-taught amateurs -- printers, portrait painters, poets, watchmakers, & the like. This book introduces the men behind both the successes &  failures: Benjamin Franklin, Alessandro Volta, Joseph Henry, Thomas Davenport, Samuel Morse, Cyrus Field, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla & Guglielmo Marconi. “Captures one of the most creative periods of experimentation in history.”
