Summary
In this book, Richard W. Bulliet focuses on three major phases in the evolution of the wheel and their relationship to the needs and ambitions of human society. Bulliet's most interesting finding is that a simple desire to move things from place to place did not drive the wheel's development. Bulliet expands the social, economic, and political significance of a tool we only partially understand
