Recent Revolutions in Chemistry

ea. vol: photogs. bibliog. index. glossary. (Science Impact Bks.). CIP. Watts. Oct. 1986. PSm $10.90. Gr 7-9 These accurate and detailed books attempt to give information on the latest developments in two fields of science. . . . Chemistry is the more difficult subject to tackle. As Corrick points out in an early chapter, chemistry has grown to encompass nearly all other areas of science. And, because background information is needed before some of the more recent ``revolutions'' can be explained, much of the book reads like an overview of the development of modern chemistry. Some interesting information is imparted, but this is an incomplete attempt to cover a wide subject area. . . . Geology has the advantage of covering a narrower subject, and gives good summaries of plate tectonics, the geology of the ocean floors, and other ``recent'' discoveries. Both books are illustrated with good black-and-white photographs and excellent diagrams. Two solid science books that should prove useful for reports. Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, Ill.
