Eli Whitney and the birth of American technology by Constance McLaughlin Green( Book )

20 editions published between 1956 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of specific challenges led Eli Whitney to exercise his ingenuity in technology and made him an engineer. His cotton gin revolutionized Southern agriculture. And the problems of manufacturing large quantities of guns drove him to develop principles important in his own time, and even more important later. The application of those principles would one day give American industry the structure within which it more than fulfilled the ambitions of the Revolutionary generation. This is the absorbing story Constance Green has told through a skillful mingling of personal narrative and technological analysis. - Editor's preface

22 editions published between 1953 and 2017 in English and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Army fought World War II with matériel much of which was developed in the decade prior to our entry, particularly in the period following the German blitz in Poland. Our efforts to develop munitions to the point where our armies could cope on equal terms with those of potential enemies are covered here in this, the first of three projected volumes on the history of the Ordnance Department in World War II. To provide essential background, this book includes a rather lengthy analysis of pre-1940 difficulties and a rapid sketch of the confused interim when the United States hovered between peace and war. Discussion of the vital preliminaries to efficient wartime functioning follows in chapters describing the evolution of a workable organization and the recruiting and training of soldiers and civilians to carry out the Ordnance mission. The last section of the book deals with research and development of weapons
