Overall I consider Engineering in History to be an extremely interesting look back at engineering and its relation to the advancement of civilized society I found the sections on the development of the steam engine the sections on bridge building and the nascent field of electrical engineering especially fascinating Unfortunately the authors focus primarily on European and American engineering history with only brief forays into early Egyptian and Mesopotamian engineering China is mentioned only in passing Otherwise the authors concern themselves only with western development which I consider a major weakness and missed opportunity In addition the authors occasionally espouse social opinions that strike me as out of date and slightly offensive however given that the book was published in 1955 and rarely ventures outside its purview this can largely be overlooked A highly edifying read for any engineer interested in placing their work in a larger historical context or to anyone else who loves a highly detailed and thoroughly researched historical primer Count me in both former and latter groups
