About

Overview

The three volumes of Science and Scientists cover 245 of the most important breakthroughs or milestones in the history of science, cross-referenced to link those that built on others, from ancient times to the present day. These essays are accompanied by 125 sidebars on concepts, episodes, or scientists behind the discoveries. Each essay opens with a brief definition of the topic and a summary of its significance, followed by a list of the central figures involved. The text of each essay follows, broken by informative subheads. Cross-references to other essays in these volumes follow, and each essay ends with a listing of core resources for "Further Reading." Each essay is approximately 4-5 pages long.
