Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contains 7,000 terms and concepts with see and see also references, but not pronunciations. Fifty pages of full-color illustrations, many of which make prodigal use of space and appear apart from their articles. Has: 850 biographical entries; tables, including Nobel laureates; a glossary of terms. Lacks: high-temp. superconductivity; supercollider; string theory. An attractive book, may induce school children to a deeper study of science, but provides no bibliographic guidance. For classroom use below the college level. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
