520 1  "This highly original study explores the profound 
       relationship between science and government to present a 
       new understanding of modern state formation. Beginning 
       with a discussion of the experimental science of Robert 
       Boyle in seventeenth-century England, Patrick Carroll 
       develops the concept of "engine science" to capture the 
       centrality of engineering practices and technologies to 
       the emerging mechanical philosophy of the day. He traces 
       the introduction of engine science into colonial Ireland, 
       showing how that country subsequently became a laboratory 
       for experiments in statecraft."--BOOK JACKET.
