Descripción The University Press of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky, 2010. Hardcover. Condición: As New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. 1938 cover portrait by Robert Coburn Ilustrador. 1st Edition. Number line complete 5 4 3 2 1. Boards resist opening past 60 degrees; unread. This is a review copy with publisher's original publicity materials laid in. Author is a lecturer in Film Studies at Trinity College Dublin. Yes, Ms. Lamarr (working with composer George Antheil) in 1942 invented radio frequency-hopping, a technology intended to prevent jamming of radio signals to naval torpedoes. It was not so employed till after the war -- though without it we would not today have secure cell phones. At least one observer notes that if she'd been willing to bring to the screen the emotional range she displayed when discussing her inventions, "There would have been no stopping her." A lovely book 281 pp with index. Reduced from $37. Nº de ref. del artículo: 002410
