John Gribbin

Science

A History

€ 22.95

This text tells the story of the people who made science and the turbulent times they live in. As well as famous figures such as Copernicus, Darwin and Einstein, there are also the obscure, the eccentric and even the mad. This diverse cast includes, among others :Andreas Vesalius, anatomist and secret grave-robber; the flamboyant Galileo, accused of heresy for his ideas; the obsessive, competitive Newton, who wrote his rivals out of the history books; Gregor Mendel, the Moravian monk who founded modern genetics; and Louis Agassiz, who was so determined to prove the existence of ice ages that he marched his colleagues up a mountain to show them the evidence.

The author:
John Gribbin's books include The Hole in the Sky, a survey of the destruction of the ozone layer, and Hothouse Earth, a study of the greenhouse effect. He has written regularly for The Times and the Guardian, and is physics consultant for the New Scientist. He also broadcasts for the BBC World Service and is occasionally adviser for television documentaries. John Gribbin lives in Sussex with his wife and their two sons
