The experience of reading this book resembles the best kind of graduate seminar…this book is a wonderful contrast to those treatments of science as esoteric and ivory-tower.(Robert Bud The British Journal for the History of Science)
Clearly written, meticulously documented, and well argued, this work will appeal to specialists in urban studies as well as historians of science, technology, comparative cultural development, and international political development.(R.P. Hallion, Hallion Associates CHOICE)
