A Brief History of Science: Through the Development of Scientific Instruments
By : Crump, Thomas
An exploration of scientific advances throughout time. From earliest pre-history, with the dawning understanding of fire and its many uses, up to the astonishing advances of the 21st century, Thomas Crump traces the increasingly sophisticated means employed in our attempts to understand the universe. The result is an account of how our curious nature has continually pushed forward the frontiers of science and, as a consequence, human civilization.
