Construction: Building the Impossible (Innovators Series) [Hardcover]

Grade 6-10-Aaseng offers a concise but thorough look at seven innovations in engineering, architecture, and construction. The projects range from Imhotep’s Step Pyramid to the father-and-son team who built the Brooklyn Bridge to the Thames River tunnel and the Empire State Building. After an introduction to the builder that places the project in its historical context, the author clearly lays out the breakthrough that made its construction possible and the impact of that advancement on subsequent endeavors. Each chapter concludes with a look at the effect that the structure has had on society. The book includes plenty of black-and-white photographs, but they are sometimes too small or lacking in contrast to show details clearly. Sidebars define technical and unfamiliar words, which are repeated in the glossary. They also provide biographical facts and anecdotes about other people important to the project. Interesting statistics about the tallest buildings and longest bridges and an extensive index round out an engrossing book that will find a useful life in most collections.Jeanette Larson, Texas State Library, Austin Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.
