Encyclopedic Dictionary of Science

Encyclopedic Dictionary of Science

by Bernard Dixon, Dougal Dixon, Linda Gamlin, Iain Nicolson

Editorial Reviews

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.
