Full-color photos. The evolution of human civilization is traced through the tools people have devised to shape and improve the world--from the simple abacus to timekeeping items, telephones, and complex silicon chips.From Kirkus Reviews:
An ``Eyewitness'' book based on beautiful photographs of items in the British Science Museum, accompanied by a superficial text with smarmy, labored paragraph headings. The credits involve at least 40 people in addition to the author; the final conglomeration can be inconsistent--e.g., the same firebow is shown on two pages with different, conflicting captions--with lots of mislabeled pictures here, and little basic science or discussion of why the inventions were important. Handsome but slight. Index. (Nonfiction. 8-12) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
