Against the background of the trajectory of the Brazilian Association of Industrial Engineering (ABEMI), the work brings together illustrations and images ranging from 19th century scenarios to the great projects built in Brazil to show the achievements that contributed to the improvement of the national infrastructure and the challenges faced throughout the process.

Throughout its 178 pages, the book portrays several historical moments that had a great impact on the country's economic and industrial development, such as the decree signed in 1785 by D. Maria I demanding the extinction of any manufacturing activity in Brazil for being contrary to the interests of the colony itself. Years later, a charter issued by D. João would revoke the decision and eliminate a major obstacle to the beginning of national industrialization.
