From Aristotle, Galilei, and Darwin to Einstein, Feynman, and Hawking, Makers of Science explores the complex history of scientific achievement in a fresh and lively way by looking at the lives and times of its greatest minds. Along the way, social and cultural events, such as the French Revolution, women's rights, and World War II, are explored to help place each individual's life and work in context.
