Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cipolla has a sharp eye for the heaven in a grain of sand. He takes a prosaic piece of hardware and uses it as a path into some of the central themes of history.... Imaginative and wide-ranging."
The Economist

"Brilliant.... Demonstrates the economic and technological development by which the continent thrust into the forefront of civilization."
The Listener

About the Author

Carlo M. Cipolla was the author of Before the Industrial Revolution and a professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He died in 2000.
