Second Edition, edited by August F. Manz
What is this simple but complex process called welding? When did it begin? This book is a humble attempt to answer just a few questions about the origins of welding. It is not a textbook or an academic paper. It aims to give the reader some basic knowledge of a few aspects of the history of welding and its problems and its contribution to society, from antiquity to modern times, from brazing and forging to gas welding and electric welding.
