Abstract

that technology was a strategie element within an Empire which extended to the place where the sun sets" (p. 10) - what was the value of imperial possessions as places where Spanish engineers could inter- vene and in what way did they design their power strategies, taking into account the creation of local technical elites? Although subtle, there is a presence of the Empire in some chapters, particularly in those which focus on cartography, but this is never clearly assumed and in my view de- served a deeper analysis. The volumes are enriched by many illus- trations which make their reading easier and pleasurable. Generally, this is a remarkable work, in- teresting not only to the history of technol- ogy in Spain, but also from the European perspective, causing the reader to look for- ward to the release of the next volumes. In the final one, a wrap-up on the conceptual questions mentioned above and (re)ana- lysed in the light of the information pro- vided by the essays to be produced would be most welcomed.
