KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the second book in The Rise of Modern Science Series. Written by the series' general editor, volume two focuses on the most significant of periods -- the Scientific Revolution's decisive stage. Hall concentrates on the writings of Galileo that most influenced the conclusions and writings of Newton. The nature of the changes and the difficulties encountered by the new theories are clearly explained. An essential book for all serious general science, collections, with index, illustrations, notes and bibliography.
