From the Publisher:

A comprehensive overview of the interconnections between the history of western civilization and the history of science, this volume examines the evolution of science and scientific thought from ancient times to present. Framed in a lively narrative style, the book also explores the human side of science, fundamental concepts and models in all sciences, and the general ideas behind scientific developments.

From the Back Cover:

Author Anthony M. Alioto clearly presents complex scientific concepts in a narrative style that is easy to understand, making ideas such as Aristotelian physics, Newtonian physics and calculus, evolution, special and general relativity, and quantum mechanics accessible to readers with little or no scientific background.
