Description
 
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.
