About this product
- DescriptionLike any other human endeavor, chemistry was built by real people, with all their strengths and faults. Cathedrals of Science describes its construction-the intersection of science and personality that transformed chemistry, with its chemists struggling for understanding, squabbling over scientific credit, and making moral choices about chemical warfare, totalitarianism, and nuclear weapons.
- Author BiographyCoffey spent most of his career in the design of instruments for chemical research and was a co-founder of a number of scientific instrument companies. In 2003, he began research into the history of chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley.
