the increase of the mass media technology makes the years prior to the good conflict a massive formative interval within the historical past of well known technology. Peter Broks explores the magazines of the time and uncovers the scientist as hero and villain; technological know-how for and opposed to faith; animal biographies and a brand new empathy with nature; know-how as evolutionary development; utopian visions and degenerationst fears. via this cultural research of well known technological know-how he exhibits how Victorian hopes changed into Edwardian disillusion.
