A dangerous engine : Benjamin Franklin, from scientist to diplomat by Joan Dash( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the time of his famous kite experiment, Benjamin Franklin was unaware that his theories about electricity had already made him a celebrity all over Europe, especially in France, where fashionable circles loved to discuss scientific discovery. Admired by the French court and beloved by French citizens, Franklin effectively became America's first foreign diplomat, later helping to enlist France's military and financial support for the American Revolution. A father of the revolution and a signer of the Constitution, Franklin was a lightning rod in political circles - "a dangerous Engine," according to a critic. And although he devoted the last twenty-five years of his life to affairs of state, his first love was always science. Handsome pen-and-ink drawings highlight moments in this revolutionary thinker's life
We shall not be moved : the women's factory strike of 1909 by Joan Dash( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The woman's factory strike of 1909 is the story of thousands of young women (most of whom were below 18 years of age) who fought a sexist and dangerous labor system in a time before women had the right to vote. This history book has a lot within its pages that speaks to modern readers, and Dash does so with a fluid and lyrical style. The pictures that accompany the written text allow readers to put faces to the names Dash mentions, and they give readers a "bird's eye" view of the abysmal conditions in the factories the striking workers endured for only pennies an hour compensation. Dash has highlighted an important event in U.S. labor history and has made history entertaining and interesting in the process
