This is a book for the Rats, Lice and History market rather than the more popular market of Microbe Hunters, though it will overlap both. Closer to the scientific approach, instead of the personality approach -- emphasis on adventure in science and thought, undiscovered countries of science, instead of on the men in their respective fields. However, the human element plays its part. Grand reading, for those interested in the thrilling adventure of modern science. Play up the table of contents in your window display -- the subjects and names will carry weight. There's a wealth of variety in subjects covered, ranging from genetics and anthropology to insect pests and weather.
