Description - Scientific Culture and the Making of the Industrial West by Margaret C. Jacob

This work seeks to explain the historical process by which in the 17th and 18th centuries scientific knowledge became an integral part of the culture of Europe and how this in turn led to the Industrial Revolution. Comparative in structure, Jacob explains why England was so much more successful at this transition than its continental counterparts.
