KIRKUS REVIEW

Using a relaxed, storytelling approach, the author describes the landmark inventions that brought the nations of the Western World (the emphasis is on the U.S.) from agrarian societies to industry-centered economies now faced with the problems of the Scientific Revolution. The effects of major advances in the machinery of manufactured goods and transportation are well, if briefly, covered. How increased industrialization changed the makeup of American communities; how the labor unions organized to meet the largely unplanned and unstudied conditions; and how the future employment and production picture will look in an automated industry, are covered in an easy to read text.
