Media reviews


"This volume is the culmination of much scholarship and enormous effort.... The result is delightful to browse..."--Nature


"The Oxford Companion to the History of Modern Science has great breadth, it contains numerous entries that are a pleasure to read, and its index makes it easy to use."--Times Literary Supplement


"Oxford's Companinion credibly covers the history of science in one volume. Accessible as well as scholarly, the work covers "modern science" but includes events that date back to antiquity and Aristotle, though much of the material begins in the 17th or 18th century...The quality of writing is excellent and the distillation of the history of science skillful."--CHOICE, T. McKimmie
