KIRKUS REVIEW

If there is anything which unites the sciences and the humanities it is an historical approach to a study of men of science. Brief biographies of 18 scientists are projected here against a background of their particular fields. Franklin, Faraday, Joseph Henry and James Clark Maxwell highlight ""Magnetism and Electricity"". Harvey, Darwin and Pavlov are the giants of ""The Study of Life"". Ideal for sparking interest in science.
