Product Overview

Everyone has seen footage of buildings being demolished. It seems almost magical--a few puffs of smoke and debris emerge from the base, and then the whole massive edifice topples in on itself. Anything man has built, man can tear down. Demolition shows you exactly how it is done.

Modern Marvels turns the tables on the typical chronicles of creation to see how technology and training combine to bring great structures down. From early, brutal methods to the near-surgical precision of top urban demolition companies, this is a fascinating examination of an often-overlooked chapter in engineering history. We'll watch some of the most difficult, dangerous and disastrous demolition jobs ever undertaken, and meet the men who make them possible. And we'll examine the many factors that must be considered before any large-scale demolition takes place.

In some ways, Demolition holds up a mirror to our history--with each act of destruction, a new chapter is opened, and what we choose to destroy reflects the values of that time.
