Inhaltsangabe: Industrial Archaeology is at the centre of the history of technology, and is concerned with the study, preservation and conservation of the sites and artefacts of scientific and manufacturing industry. This encyclopedia covers the US and Europe in particular, (with some entries on other parts of the developed world) with entries on nations, cities, individual sites, as well as a comprehensive set of entries on industrial processes themselves, from civil engineering to mining, from steelworking to transportation. Theoretical entries survey museums, conservation, adaptive reuse and other topics. Bibliography. Index.
Advisory Editors: Axel Fohl, David H. Shayt, Stuart Smith, Michael Stratton and Robert M. Vogel.
This encyclopedia draws together the different strands of industrial archaeology into one volume, a pioneering collection which covers individual countries and their sites as thoroughly as the industrial processes themselves, and addresses the key issues of preservation and conservation in a set of theoretical entries.
Most countries of the developed world are surveyed in detail. The world's leading experts in the field describe significant sites and manufacturing regions, and also set out definitions of historical industrial terms, from steel-making to cheese manufacture, from airships to ammonia. Significant figures in industry from the period 1650-1950, as well as leading practitioners of industrial archaeology have biographical entries.
The book's alphabetical organization makes it easy to use, and a comprehensive index and cross-reference system draws together processes and places.
Maps, photographs, diagrams and archive material combine to illustrate this landmark encyclopedia, which also contains a comprehensive bibliography.
The collaboration of more than fifty specialists from many countries has produced a volume which stimulates a host of questions about the similarities and differences in industrial development in various countries, and at the same time provides comprehensive guidance to terms used in industrial history, and to significant museums and monuments.
