Clocks and Culture 1300-1700

Carlo M. Cipolla

Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company

Format: Paperback

The history of the clock opens a window on how different cultures have viewed time and on Europe's path to industrialization. HOW DID A TIME-KEEPING DEVICE affect the growth of crafts guilds and the scientific research that led to the Industrial Revolution? Clocks and Culture is a brief history of the changes wrought by and on Europe over four hundred years due to technological advances in timekeeping and the rise of a time-aware culture. In his introduction, Anthony Grafton, Henry Putnam University Professor of History at Princeton University, puts this classic book in perspective.
