Connections: history of science and inventions

Share "Connections" masterfully combines popular science and detective work to retrace the

steps that led to eight inventions that ushered in the technological age: the computer, the

production line, telecommunications, the airplane, the atomic bomb, plastics, the guided

rocket, and television. A brilliant examination of the ideas, inventions, and coincidences

that have culminated in the major technological achievements of today.

James Burke, the BBC's chief reporter on the Apollo missions to the moon, was awarded the

Royal Television Society silver medal in 1973 and the gold medal in 1974. Connections was

over two years in the making, the research and filming taking the author to twnety-three

countries.
James Burke untangles the pattern of interconnecting events, the accidents of time,

circumstance, and place that gave rise to these inventions and to a host of related

discoveries along the way. He explains, for instance, how the arrival of the cannon led

eventually to the development of movies; how the popularity of underwear in the twelfth

century led to the invention of the printing press; how the waterwheel evolved into the

computer. He links these inventions with one another and with the stream of history,

exploring them with dazzling insight.
