KIRKUS REVIEW

A revision of the volume which first appeared in 1939 which contains more than fifty per cent new material and which is, concisely, factually, yet popularly a synthesis of scientific achievements in various fields. Written by an editor of the New York Times, these articles cover innumerable innovations and inventions; science and warfare, and the impetus to technology of war; industrial research and its post -- 1890 frontiers; chemotherapy; atomic energy, new materials and new houses, evolutionary evidence; brain waves and psychosurgery: socialized medicine; electronics; the sun -- the seen -- the stars and rockets. The publication of this second series attests to the success of the first, and the material here (if not, altogether so new now) appeals to all ages.
