Title: Materials: research, development and applications
Description: Turnhout, Brepols, 2002. 246 pp. Soft cover. NEW CONDITION. Proceedings of the XXth International Congress of History of Science (Liège, 20-26 July 1997) ¶ Published in the series: 'De Diversis Artibus', Collection of Studies from the International Academy of the history of Science, T58 The theme of materials in the history of technology has never been as well researched as other more popular areas like energy, production technology or transport and communication. The present collection of papers originating from the symposium on "Materials: Science, Technology and Early Applications" in conjunction with the 20th International History of Science Congress in Liège, 1997, make a contribution to remedying this unsatisfactory situation. They concentrate on the 19th and 20th centuries and range from research on the metallurgy of zinc in the late 18th and early 19th century to the prospects of ceramic materials to ameliorate contemporary environmental problems.
