Particular attention is given to historical, social, and political contexts and challenges faced by the inventors (e.g., institutionalized racism; difficulties with the patent system). The text is dense but informative. Illustrations and photographs break up the pages. Reading list, websites. Ind. Copyright 2010 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
