Guns, sails and empires; technological innovation and the early phases of European expansion, 1400-1700 by Carlo M Cipolla( Book )

32 editions published between 1965 and 2002 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guns, Sails and Empires is that rarity among works of history: a short book with a simple, powerful thesis that the entire book is devoted to proving. Carlo Cipolla begins with the question, "Why, after the end of the fifteenth century were the Europeans able not only to force their way through to the distant Spice Islands but also to gain control of all the major sea-routes and to establish overseas empires?" (19) He quickly dismisses motive as a causal factor: motive to circumvent the "Moslem blockade" had existed in earlier centuries as well, but motive without means is empty. Cipolla identifies two developments that provided the means for Europeans to finally succeed beyond their wildest dreams: ships seaworthy enough to reach distant seas; and powerful cannon that could be carried by these ships
Clocks and culture, 1300-1700 by Carlo M Cipolla( Book )

30 editions published between 1967 and 2003 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did a time-keeping device affect the growth of crafts guilds and the scientific research that led to the Industrial Revolution in Europe? Why were Chinese Mandarins enchanted by the intricate workings of clocks but uninterested in their time-keeping function? While European life quickly became regulated by the ticking of town clocks, Asia retained its seasonal cycles of time and initially resisted the idea of living life by the clock. Clocks and Culture is a brief history of the changes wrought by and on Europe and Asia over four hundred years due to technological advances in time-keeping and the rise of a clock-centered culture. - Publisher

18 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seventeenth century Italy had the most advanced system of public health in Europe. Ser Cristofano of Giulio Ceffini, a prominent citizen of Prato and a member of the board of public health, was at the height of the [plague of 1630] entrusted with special powers and used them. Check points were set up, gates closed and guarded, the doors of infected houses were nailed up from the outside, quarantine for suspected contacts was enforced, a pesthouse and a convalescent home were organised, staffed, and supplied. But there simply was not enough money to meet a host of extraordinary expenses. It was poverty as much as ignorance that helped the microbes do as much harm as they did in spite of Cristofano and his colleagues"--Page [2] of jacket
