520    This book is an innovative, interdisciplinary study of the
       nature of design as a form of communication within and 
       across Britain and its empire in the long nineteenth 
       century. In this period, Britain had developed from the 
       world's first industrial nation into the 'Workshop of the 
       World' but how were technological innovations translated 
       and communicated across the imperial territories? How were
       designs turned into reality? This book explores these 
       themes, incorporating archival case study technologies 
       such as trains, sugar manufacture and agricultural 
       technologies. Using a four-part framework we firstly 
       examine the identification of innovation opportunities and
       how these translated to engineering specifications. The 
       realization of conceptual designs through collaboration 
       and their subsequent manufacture and distribution as 
       finished products are then reviewed. Using the authors' 
       expertise in the fields of historical and design 
       engineering, this study contributes real-world case 
       studies to design theory. Dr Annie Tindley is Senior 
       lecturer in British History at the University of Newcastle,
       UK, specialising in modern Scottish, British and Imperial 
       history. Dr Andrew Wodehouse is Senior lecturer in Design,
       Manufacturing and Engineering at the University of 
       Strathclyde, UK, specialising in interaction design, 
       creativity and innovative design teams.
