A collection of about 2000 questions asked by children forms the foundation on which this book is built. Rather than decide what it is that children ought to know, an attempt was made to find out what children want to know.
by Henri Poincare - W. Scott
Henri Poincare wrote the essays in this book in 1905, the landmark period in physics after Maxwell and before special relativity. Not just the science, but the social attitudes of the day come through in this pleasant little book.

The Evolution of Modern Science outlines the story of science from Aristotle to the present. The goals of this book are to show the evolution of modern science in historical and political context and to demystify science.
This General Science book is aimed at GCSE students rather than university students. Although this text is set out using the English system, students from other nations will find much of the material relevant. The subject is divided into modules.
