How did a time-keeping device affect the growth of crafts guilds and the scientific research that led to the Industrial Revolution in Europe? Why were Chinese Mandarins enchanted by the intricate workings of clocks but uninterested in their time-keeping function? While European life quickly became regulated by the ticking of town clocks, Asia retained its seasonal cycles of time and initially resisted the idea of living life by the clock. Clocks and Culture is a brief history of the changes wrought by and on Europe and Asia over four hundred years due to technological advances in time-keeping and the rise of a clock-centered culture. - Publisher

Between two cultures : an introduction to economic history by Carlo M Cipolla( Book )

26 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: In this wise and witty work, a world-renowned economic historian takes us behind the scenes to observe a small band of scholars reconstructing the past with the tools of economic analysis and the narrative power of the traditional historian. Despite the methodological gulf between economics and history, both disciplines depend heavily on documents that have survived scattering, aging, and destruction. When the written record runs out, the economic historian is not necessarily at a dead end: "If a detective fails to uncover written evidence enabling him to identify the murderer, he looks around for finger prints, cigarette butts, bunches of keys, stains on his clothing or signs of a break-in." Similarly, the economic historian hunts for cues in old coins, in inscriptions on tombs and monuments, in bricks and stone, in the shape of fields and the layout of cities. Ever the reliable guide, Cipolla maps out regions of new understanding in such areas as slavery, banking, voyages of discovery, and inventions brought to us by economic historians. And he shows with copious examples how our perceptions of everyday life in other times have sharpened and changed under relentless examination by a new breed of historians

Miasmas and disease : public health and the environment in the pre-industrial age by Carlo M Cipolla( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the themes of health, medicine, and the origins of infectious disease in pre-industrial Italy. Using the papers of the Magistrato alla Sanita, the Florence Health Magistracy, covering the first 30 years of the 17th century, the author recreates the ecological and medical environment of the Florentine countryside. The book opens with an analysis of the Sanitation Office in Florence, the Uffici de Sanita, of its regional inspectors and their grasp of epidemiological principles. It reveals the transformation of the Office from a temporary administrative body into a permanent institution with preventative aims. And it documents, through their own verbatim accounts, the endeavours of intelligent and motivated doctors and medical inspectors to combat disease within a superstitious culture and an environment of dirt. The book shows how tantalizingly close was contemporary medical practice, focused on the physical elements, humours, and pungent exhalations, to the real sources of infection - dirt, rubbish, and sanitary effluents. Cipolla shows how, despite limitations in knowledge, the painful process of 17th century discovery provided the basis for modern medical insight
Cristofano and the plague; a study in the history of public health in the age of Galileo by Carlo M Cipolla( Book )

18 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seventeenth century Italy had the most advanced system of public health in Europe. Ser Cristofano of Giulio Ceffini, a prominent citizen of Prato and a member of the board of public health, was at the height of the [plague of 1630] entrusted with special powers and used them. Check points were set up, gates closed and guarded, the doors of infected houses were nailed up from the outside, quarantine for suspected contacts was enforced, a pesthouse and a convalescent home were organised, staffed, and supplied. But there simply was not enough money to meet a host of extraordinary expenses. It was poverty as much as ignorance that helped the microbes do as much harm as they did in spite of Cristofano and his colleagues"--Page [2] of jacket
