Publisher Oxford University Press
Author(s)
Overview
Science: A Four Thousand Year History rewrites science's past. Instead of focussing on difficult experiments and abstract theories, Patricia Fara shows how science has always belonged to the practical world of war, politics, and business. 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 trampled down their rivals in their quest for success. Sweeping through the centuries, from ancient Babylon right up to the latest hi-tech experiments in genetics and particle physics, Patricia Fara illuminates the financial interests, imperial ambitions, and publishing enterprises that have made science the powerful global phenomenon that it is today.
