Milestones in Discovery and Invention Set by Chelsea House Publishers


Milestones in Discovery and Invention Set by Chelsea House Publishers

The revised and expanded Milestones in Discovery and Inventions set is based on a simple but powerful idea - that science and technology are not separate from people's daily lives but rather an integral part of seeking to understand and reshape the world. Each volume focuses on the lives and achievements of at least 10 individuals who together have revolutionized an aspect of science or technology. Although early pioneers are included where appropriate, the emphasis is generally on researchers who worked in the 20th century or are still working today. Readers will be intrigued and inspired by their stories. A number of features provide further context for the biographies in these books. Each chapter contains a chronology and suggestions for further reading. In addition, a glossary and a list of helpful Web resources are included at the end of each volume. Sidebars explore particular aspects of the profiled scientists' and inventors' work.
