Scientifica Historia: How the World's Great Science Books Chart the History of Knowledge

Author(s): Brian Clegg


Scientifica Historica is a unique, essay-based review of those books that marked the development of science from classical times to the new millennium. The result is a fascinating chronological exploration of human endeavour within the context of society, politics and even the military, where the twists and turns prove it to be a much longer, messier process than we usually think. By recounting the history of science via its key works--those books written by the keenest minds our world has known--this book reflects the physical results of, brilliant thought manifested in titles that literally changed the course of knowledge, sometimes by increments, and sometimes with revolutionary impact.
