This book : "outlines the key concepts forming the core of each major branch of science, and how they were developed ; reviews the achievements of all the major figures in the history of modern science from Galileo onward ; explains the ideas that upset our 'common sense' view of reality, from the weird behaviour of fundamental particles to the vastness of the universe ; explores the cultural consequences of scientific discoveries and ideas ; reveals science for what it really is - a relentless curiosity born out of mystery and wonder." -- back cover.

In an attempt to highlight the severity of the appropriation and manipulation of science and technology, Mike Bennett investigates the history of both from a revolutionary new perspective. He takes a unique look at the combined history of science and technology, detailing examples of manipulation of ground-breaking science by the intelligence community. One such example is that of Wernher von Braun. When he was taken to America in 1945, it was kept from the general public that von Braun was a Major in the SS, reporting directly to SS General Hans Kammler, who had been using slave labour from the concentration camps to build V2 rockets. Kammler's achievements and the towering advances made by his group of scientists and engineers were truly ground-breaking and the security system that he put in place to surround and protect these operations was never broken. This marked the start of what we now refer to as black project operations, and the system has since been replicated worldwide. Focussing on the manipulation of technological advances, A Brief History of Science with Levityencourages readers to look more closely at the information disclosed to us about modern science. An extensively researched book, it is full of primary sources, ranging from leading politicians to leaders of rogue nations, diplomats to common thieves and billionaire heads of industry to beggars. This book will appeal to those interested in science and history.

For readers interested in the development of major scientific concepts and the role of science in the western world, here is the first conceptually organized historical dictionary of scientific thought. The purpose of the dictionary is to illuminate this history by providing a concise, single volume reference book of short historical accounts of the important themes, ideas, and discoveries of science. Its conceptual approach differentiates the dictionary from previous reference works such as books of scientific biography and makes it a convenient manual both for the general reader and for scientists interested in the origin of concepts in their own and other scientific fields. Originally published in 1982. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
