Science is . . . wonderful and human: a complex web of ideas, facts, philosophical concepts, history, and serendipity.

Destined to be the leader in the field, The Encyclopedia of Science and Technology is a revolutionary full-color, A-to-Z guide that sets a new standard for science reference.

Edited by acclaimed science writer and physicist James Trefil, the Encyclopedia's 1,000 entries combine in-depth coverage with a vivid graphic format to bring every facet of science, technology, and medicine into stunning focus. From absolute zero to the Mesozoic era to semiconductors to the twin paradox, Trefil and his co-authors have an uncanny ability to convey how the universe works and to show readers how to apply that knowledge to everyday problems.


*How is aggression explained by brain chemistry or the endocrine system?

*Why are acoustics received differently by the young and old ear?

*Why was work halted on America's new supercollider?


Eachencyclopedia-length entry distills a subject's key aspects -- its limitations and controversies, its experiments and theories -- capturing the excitement of scientific discovery and insight. And a unique system of cross references leads readers from theory to practice, tracing relationships across disciplines and over time. An entry on aging, for example, guides us both to its scientific roots in the cell cycle and its social dimensions in population ecology.

Unmatched in scope and presentation, The Encyclopedia of Science and Technology is certain to become the favorite one-volume science and technology reference for general readers and students alike.
