Science: A Four Thousand Year History

Science: A Four Thousand Year History by Patricia Fara

Q 125 .F27 2009

Science: A Four Thousand Year History rewrites science’s past.  Patricia Fara shows how science has always been driven by the practical world of war, politics, and business– highlighting the rich and fascinating tales behind the abstract theory and esoteric experiments.  Rather than glorifying scientists as idealized heroes, she tells true stories about real people–men ( and some women) who needed to earn their living, who made mistakes, and who sometimes quashed their rivals in their quest for success.” –book jacket
