Johns Hopkins Introductory Studies in the History of Science
Acquisitions Editor: Matthew McAdam
Series Editors: Mott T. Greene and Sharon Kingsland
Short synthetic titles that make the history of science accessible and interesting, challenging readers without attempting encyclopedic completeness. They tell stories, tackle tangible problems, involve readers in the life histories of discoverers, and account for the reasons why things happened where, when, and how they did.
