Power over Peoples by Headrick, Daniel R.
Power over Peoples: Technology, Environments and Western Imperialism, 1400 to the Present
by Headrick, Daniel R.
 
An examination of Western imperialism's complex relationship with technology, from the first Portuguese ships that ventured down the coast of Africa to America's conflicts in the Middle East today. Headrick traces the evolution of Western technologies from muskets and galleons to jet planes and smart bombs, and sheds light on the factors that have led to victory in some cases and defeat in others.
