From the Publisher
The event chronology (500 BCE to present) is outstanding …
—J. A. Buczynski, Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology, CHOICE, May 2009, Vol. 46, No. 9
Praise for Previous Editions:
… this is a very good reference book … If you have anything to do with running libraries … then it is one to buy.
—Colin Tudge, New Scientist
There are, of course, rivals on the shelves, but none of them seems to match the Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists in its breadth of learning and in so many specific ways, too. You have a splendid pair of tomes, which can be used not only as a biographical retrieval tool but also as a resource through which to trace the great schools of scientific exploration, the ebb and flow of revolution and ‘normal science’, and the personalia and geography of science today. The editors have made a major contribution to the scientific enterprise by creating an encyclopedia of this sort. Peer review is at the heart of science, and it is at the heart of this outstanding piece of work, too.
—Bernard Dixon, Medical Science Research
… this is a very major work … it is very warmly recommended and most definitely belongs in any scientific or major reference collection.
—Stuart James, Science
The two volumes are well produced, crammed full of useful facts, and should prove helpful in promoting a knowledge of the history of science.
—Robert Hanbury Brown, Physics World
