Synopsis

The Rise of Industry: 1700-1800 1700-1800 by Charlie Samuels

A must for Key Stage 3 students aged 11 and up, this engaging book uses timelines to describe scientific and technological advances from 1700 to 1800. The Rise of Industry looks at scientific discoveries in the eighteenth century, covering the work of James Watt, Benjamin Franklin, Jethro Tull, Antoine Lavoiser and others. The steam engine, farm machinery, navigation at sea and early railways are included. Each volume in the five-book series examines the story of scientific discovery in a series of timelines and each chapter examines either a particular aspect of science, or the life and work of an important scientist of the time. Parallels with other fields, such as astronomy and mathematics are highlighted so that readers can gain a rounded understanding of how scientists build on what has gone before and how science flourished in different parts of the world, or in different disciplines at the same time.
