The Engineer in History
Surveying more than two millennia, The Engineer in History presents the story of the designers and builders of aqueducts, cathedrals, clocks, machine tools, bridges, railroads, and airplanes. It examines their social origins, educations, working methods, relationships with employers, influences on management theory and practices, and many other topics. Throughout, the narrative focuses on particular engineers whose working lives exemplify the themes presented.
