Originally published in 1974, this oversized book has been revised in the new edition to include a new final chapter, appendices, bibliography, index and appoximately 800 illustrations. Book is brand new and beautiful, printed on high quality glossy paper with crisp, clear photos throughout. Photo endpapers too and we will protect the dustjacket with a brand new mylar over.Text traces the history of electrification, a process which was largely, but not quite, as successful as had been predicted. The triumphs are all celebrated, of course, but the fact that the Soviet Union pulled out in front of the U.S. by the 1970's is also explored. In fact, the U.S. dropped to #17 behind Czechoslavakia, Austria, Norway and Brazil. 467 pages.
