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.

The epic story of the scientists through the ages who have sought answers to life’s biggest mystery: How did it begin? In this essential and illuminating history of Western science, Bill Mesler and H. James Cleaves II seek to answer the most crucial question in science: How did life begin? They trace the trials and triumphs of the iconoclastic scientists who have sought to solve the mystery, from Darwin’s theory of evolution to Crick and Watson’s unveiling of DNA. This fascinating exploration not only examines the origin-of-life question, but also interrogates the very nature of scientific discovery and objectivity.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A landmark volume in science writing by one of the great minds of our time, Stephen Hawking’s book explores such profound questions as: How did the universe begin—and what made its start possible? Does time always flow forward? Is the universe unending—or are there boundaries? Are there other dimensions in space? What will happen when it all ends? Told in language we all can understand, A Brief History of Time plunges into the exotic realms of black holes and quarks, of antimatter and “arrows of time,” of the big bang and a bigger God—where the possibilities are wondrous and unexpected. With exciting images and profound imagination, Stephen Hawking brings us closer to the ultimate secrets at the very heart of creation.
