About the eBook

Makers of the Modern World is the third volume of William Gurstelle's unique, hands-on journey through history. Each chapter examines a remarkable character from the past, one of the people whose insights and inventions helped create our modern world. What sets this series apart from other history books - including other histories of technology - is that each chapter also includes step-by-step instructions for making your own version of the historical invention. History comes to life in a way you have never experienced before when you follow the inventors' steps and recreate the groundbreaking devices of the past with your own hands.

This volume brings you to the early modern era and the invention of the electric light, the movie projector, and the automobile. Inside, you will discover:

Alessandro Volta and ElectroplatingHumphrey Davy and the First Electric lightGeorge Cayley and the Aeronautical GliderThe Lumiere Brothers and the Movie ProjectorRudolf Diesel and the Automobile EngineHans Goldschmidt and the Thermite ReactionAugust Mobius and the Mobius StripLouis Poinsot's Loads, Moments, and Torques
