Meet the Makers of Science! Discover the fascinating achievements of the world's greatest scientists, past and present. From Aristotle, Galileo, and Darwin to Einstein, Feynman, and Hawking, Makers of Science explores the complex history of scientific achievement in a fresh and lively way by looking at the lives and times of its greatest minds. Along the way, social and cultural events, such as the French Revolution, women's rights, and World War II, are explored to help place each individual's life and work in context. The final volume contains a glossary of scientific terms, suggestions for further reading, and a comprehensive index. Lavishly illustrated with drawings, portraits, and photographs, Makers of Science is an indispensable five-volume reference set, offering an accessible window into how science works in the world.
