Publisher's Synopsis

Departing from the usual eurocentrist approach, Pacey takes a global view, and demonstrates that western technology is an amalgam of cross-fertilizations from the great civilizations of China, India, and Islam and from the apparently primitive cultures of peasant farmers in Africa or Inuit hunters in the Arctic.
