Great Feuds in Technology: Ten of the Liveliest Disputes Ever
Hal Hellman (au). Who invented the telegraph? The automobile? The airplane? TV? Conflicting claims over the answers to these questions have led to some of the longest & most bitter battles in the history of technology. You’ll discover how the use of new technologies sparked years of violence among the Luddites in 19th-century England; why Thomas Edison lost the biggest battle of his career -- which may be why we have regional blackouts today; & how one small, rude, & brilliant admiral flogged the U.S. Navy into creating a nuclear submarine fleet. This book takes a close look at each of these celebrated disputes & reveals that the answers are far more complex, entertaining, & enlightening than you might ever imagine.
