Making Jet Engines presents a radical re-interpretation of the early history of the jet engine in Germany, Britain, and the United States and, through this, sets out a new account of the central features of twentieth-century invention. Hermione Giffard, without invoking foresight or conservative resistance to novelty, explores why individual firms decided not to develop jet engines, failed to do so, or succeeded, highlighting how each country pursued jet engines for reasons that reflected their particular war aims and industrial expertise. By beginning with production, the very structure ofMaking Jet Engines challenges the traditional way of telling stories of invention, for it focuses consecutively on production, development, inventive institutions, and, lastly, the celebrity of the jet engine’s inventors, who she portrays as the employees that they were. By demonstrating the crucial importance of industry in the emergence of novelty, this is a game changing book for anyone interested in technological invention today.
