Ancient people of Mesopotamia were the first to discover how to turn sand into glass. These early glassmakers created beads and other small pieces of jewelry out of glass. Over time people learned to use glass for a wide range of items from bottles and other containers to windows and mirrors. Today, glass has many practical as well as scientific uses. In Glass: From Cinderalla's Slippers to Fiber Optics, Kassinger covers the history of glass from early times to the present. She also relates some of the myths associated with glass and explains the science behind its production and use. Book jacket.
