 American Scientist Online - The Origins of 20th-Century Progress   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In Creating the Twentieth Century, Smil argues that the two generations before 1914 laid the foundations for an expansive civilization based on the synergy of fossil fuels, science and technical innovation.
For example, in Transforming the Twentieth Century, he comfortably discusses and draws into his argument chlorofluorocarbons, changes in raw material use, new techniques of oil-platform construction, atmospheric CO levels since 1200 a.d., fabrication machinery for silicon wafers, the chemical structure of thermoplastics, rocket engines and much more.
This is a pity, for Adams anticipated Smil's argument that science and technical development accelerated history and transformed society so decisively during the late 19th century that it constituted a fundamental break in human experience.
