The Cambridge Dictionary of Scientists by David, Ian, John and Margaret Miller (E-Book)

From Library Journal
Covering 1300 scientists (including more than 70 pioneering female scientists) from 38 countries, this work builds on the authors’ Concise Dictionary of Scientists (Chambers/Cambridge Univ., 1989), now out of print. Older articles have been revised, updated, and expanded for the new edition. Accompanied by numerous illusrations, the biographical entries are well written and seem complete, focusing on scientists in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, geology, astronomy, mathematics, medicine, meteorology, and technology. Another special feature is found in the 32 panels, which give concise histories of selected subjects ranging from “The Exploration of Space” to “Science and the First World War (1914-1918)” to “Human Inherited Disease and the Human Genome Project.” The volume also includes a chronology of science, an index to Nobel prize winners, and a nicely detailed subject index. Recommended for both academic and public library science reference collections.?Hilary Burton, Lawrence Livermore National Lab., Livermore, Cal.
