About this book

This revolutionary set highlights, not just the "what" of science, but more important the "why, " the "how, " and the "who." Science and Society brings science to life by showing students the factors that motivate research and how scientists compete and collaborate with one another. Each book demonstrates the connections between science and society, especially in controversial areas, and illustrates how society supports science and science supports society. The set elucidates the real, colorful personalitie of the people behind the sciences. From such early environmentalists as Thomas Jefferson, John Muir, and Aldo Leopold to the environmental movement in the 1960s and 1970s, Shades of Green explains the history of our great crusade to save the environment.
