Originally published by Pickering & Chatto, this series is now published by the University of Pittsburghs Press.
This monograph series focuses on the history of science during the nineteenth century. An era of exciting and transformative scientific discoveries, it was also a period when significant features of the relationship between contemporary science and culture first assumed form. The series includes studies of major developments within the disciplines, from geology and botany, to astronomy and medicine, as well as works on popular science. The evolution of scientific ideas is placed in its social, political, religious, cultural, imperial and international contexts.
