SCIENCE LOOKS AHEAD by Professor A.M.-Ed. Low


Email this review


A broad survey of the field of applied science, past, present, with a peek into the future. Professor Low, while contributing much of the material himself in the hopes of helping the layman to a wider field of understanding of what is going on in science, has had the cooperation of several specialists in certain fields, Huxley, Spencer-Jones and others. The text is successful in skirting the pitfalls of the academic in language and approach, and has made science stimulating reading, and shown its practical application to life today and tomorrow. Evolution, power, rays, science and the war, materials of industry, conquest of speed, measurement, food, medicine, science and the sea, science and the universe, weather, flying, communication, exploration, fossils, photography, crime -- these are the main headings.
