Synopsis

Modern Wonders by Shana Priwer, Cynthia Phillips

Modern Wonders, a title in the five-title series Frameworks: Science, Technology, and the Built Environment, illuminates the science, technology, art and architecture, and history of the world's greatest architectural and engineering achievements, including the Eiffel Tower, St. Louis Gateway Arch, World Trade Center, Mt. Rushmore, and the Millennium Wheel. Modern Wonders provides an interdisciplinary, visual approach that combines informative text, fascinating background information, and basic scientific principles with dozens of full-color photographs, illustrations, and other visuals (e.g. diagrams and equations). Appropriate for a broad audience of students, teachers, librarians, and general interest readers, Modern Wonders is an excellent supplemental resource for subjects covered throughout the curricula: science, technology, and society; art and architecture; economics; and world history and culture.

Reviews

The authors discuss the sociohistorical and mathematical concepts in great depth. These informative books are... ideal for dedicated researchers. Diagrams, charts, and full-color photographs are appropriately placed and well captioned. An extensive glossary and index round out each of the meticulous surveys. - School Library Journal

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
