About this book

Pastuer's stunning career has attracted a host of biographies, but this book, written by a French-born microbiologist, is among the best. Dubos displays a deep appreciation for the power and enduring significance of Pasteur's scientific work. Now updated to the present day by a distinguished microbiologist, Thomas D Brock, the book also has a new foreword by Pasteur scholar Gerald L Geison that places the book in its historical context.
