Leveringstid: Sendes innen 21 dager
Part I of the book-Representations-examines the way James Watt has been portrayed over time, emphasizing sculptural, pictorial and textual representations from the nineteenth century. As an important contributor to the development of arguably the most important technology of industrialization, Watt became a symbol that many groups of thinkers were anxious to claim. Part II-Realities-focuses on reconstructing the unsung "chemical Watt" instead of the lionized engineer.
