The History of Science from 1946 to the 1990s (On the Shoulders of Giants Series) by Diane Moser, Ray Spangenburg

The history of science is the history of great minds building upon the ideas of their predecessors. In 1676, Isaac Newton wrote to Robert Hooke, If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. The five-volume On the Shoulders of Giants set chronologically presents those giants and their work. By showing how science evolved from the philosophies of ancient Greece to todays high-tech science, these volumes convey the importance and the excitement of scientific discovery.<P>This volume discusses the most significant postwar scientific breakthroughs, increased specialization in all scientific branches, and the use of computers in research.
