"From earliest pre-history, with the dawning understanding of fire and its many uses, including cooking and pottery, up to the twenty-first century and the 26-kilometre underground particle accelerator, this is a fascinating exploration of mankind's innovative nature. Thomas Crump describes how our creativity, expressed in the design and production of tools and scientific instruments has continually extended the frontiers of science and, as a consequence, human civilization."--Jacket
The phenomenon of money by Thomas Crump( Book )

20 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1981, this book concerns itself with the different ways in which money is used, the relationships which then arise, and the institutions concerned in maintaining its various functions. Thomas Crump examines the emergence of institutions with familiar and distinctive monetary roles: the state, the market and the banking system. However, other uses of money - such as for gambling or the payment of fines - are also taken into account, in an exhaustive, encyclopedic treatment of the subject, which extends far beyond the range of conventional treatises on money

Abraham Lincoln's world : how riverboats, railroads, and Republicans transformed America by Thomas Crump( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The changing political geography of the United States during Abraham Lincoln's lifetime is the constant theme of this book. When Lincoln was born in 1809 there were seventeen states and when he died, twice as many. Admitting a new state meant bitter debate in the United States Congress, reflecting the conflicting interests of the Northern and Southern states - the former with its sights on the total abolition of slavery and the latter intent on retaining it at all costs. This conflict lies behind such events in antebellum America as the Missouri Compromise, the Mexican war. and the admission of Texas and California as new states, each of which radically changed the American political scene - at the cost of intensifying the animosity between North and South." "As president, Lincoln lived against a backdrop of steamboats on the great inland waterways, a continually expanding railroad network that opened up the new states beyond the Appalachians, supported by the electric telegraph, and with cities lit by gas and homes by whale oil. In the process, the foundations of America as an industrial state began to be laid, at least in the north of the country." "Thomas Crump explores the life of Abraham Lincoln within the context of his revolutionary age, and by the time of Lincoln's death in 1865 presents .an America on the verge of a great breakthrough into the modern era."
Asia-Pacific by Thomas Crump( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Asia-Pacific is the first authoritative history of a region rich in history, riven with conflict and central to our world today. The political backdrop was informed by China, from the fall of its Empire at the beginning of the 20th century through to Mao Zedong's revolution. The aftermath of World War II saw a radical transformation in what is often known as The Ring of Fire. Japan, defeated, lost its Empire and armed forces. The war between North and South Korea added a crucial twist, with world-wide repercussions still being felt a half century later. Long-standing European colonial Empires, British, Dutch and French crumbled in South East Asia, as new nations demanded independence, with varying degrees of conflict and violence -- culminating in the long Vietnam War." "The year 1975 was a watershed. Mao Zedong and Ho Chi Minh had died, leaving the way open to dialogue and rapprochement between the East and West. The strained relations between China, and the Soviet Union -- part of Mao's legacy -- together with the eventual Soviet collapse left the US as the major beneficiary." "But most importantly, the major countries of the region have been largely at peace for over 30 years, and are enjoying the fruits of this peace -- unprecedented levels of commerce and foreign investment has made the region the driving force in the world economy, and increasingly central to the politics of globalization. Yet this peace is tentative, with the rumblings of discontent always audible. Thomas Crump has written a fascinating modern history which will further our understanding of a region that has shaped our past and will continue to shape our future."--Jacket

This text provides a general study of the field of Japanese popular numeracy.
