In the third and final volume this trilogy, author Harry T. Roman advances his view that the Thomas Edison contributed much of the groundwork for many 21st century technological realities. These innovations include electric automobiles, integrated circuits, and the digital economy. Throughout Volume 3, the author presents strong, persuasive cases for how Edison’s innovative work (more than a century ago) is the basis for how engineers and other technologists are now meeting contemporary society’s needs.
