Invention in America: With Images from The Library of Congress
Russell Bourne (au)
With rare & fascinating images from The Library of Congress, this book provides an insightful look at how technological progress has affected Amer. culture. Amer. inventors produced a stream of inventions between 1790 & 1920 that forever transformed an agrarian culture into today’s industrialized society. The book explores the origins, nature & consequences of American inventive genius. Bourne traces the processes of invention, mechanization & mass production that have shaped Amer. culture. He reappraises the delicate balance between the amazing leaps forward we have been able to take as a result of our technological creativity, & the gradual realization that we must make wiser choices in harnessing those creative energies.
