While the book begins with the Stone Age, the Greeks, and the Romans, the bulk of the volume concentrates on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. A Social History of Engineering reflects Professor Armytage's special subject area interests, namely nineteenth-century industrial society, radical and socialist movements, the history of professional organization, and the study of higher and technical education

Are there adequately sophisticated batteries of attainment tests? Or valid methods of vocational guidance?

Gregory was professor of astronomy at Queen's College, London, and wrote textbooks on astronomy, chemistry, hygiene, physics and other scientific subjects. He was also a member of the Council of British Association for the advancement of science and Chairman of the Committee on Science Teaching in Secondary Schools. He was knighted in 1919, for remarkable public work in organising the British Scientific Products Exhibition. He subsequently served as editor of Nature between 1919 and 1939, and was credited with helping to establish Nature in the international scientific community. His obituary by the Royal Society stated: Gregory was always very interested in the international contacts of science, and in the columns of Nature he always gave generous space to accounts of the activities of the International Scientific Unions. He was created a Baronet, of Bristol in the County of Gloucester, in January 1931. In 1933 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Gregory died in September 1952, aged 88, when the baronetcy became extinct
