Stealing Godís Thunder: Benjamin Franklinís Lightning Rod and the Invention of America
Philip Dray (au)
A concisely, richly detailed biography of Benjamin Franklin, viewing him through the lens of his scientific inquiry and its ramifications for American democracy. Today we think of Benjamin Franklin as a founder of American independence who also dabbled in science. But in Franklinís day it was otherwise. Long before he was an eminent statesman, he was famous for his revolutionary scientific work, especially his experiments with lightning and electricity. This book recounts how Franklin unlocked one of the greatest natural mysteries of his day, the seemingly unknowable powers of electricity and lightning. ďA fascinating, original look at one of our most beloved and complex founding fathers.Ē Illustrations.
