The textbooks written by Adolphe Ganot played a major role in shaping the way physics was taught in schools. Simon's Franco-British case study looks at the role of two of Ganot's books. The study is novel for its international comparison of 19th-century physics and for its emphasis on the communication of science rather than on the science itself.

Review:

"Simon's narrative of the development of texts aimed explicitly at physics examinations reveals important links to the medical and chemical fields."
Victorian Studies"

"Combining history of science, history of education, and book history, the author provides fresh perspectives on nineteenth-century physics by means of an original narrative based on a fine-grained study of the production, circulation and appropriation of Ganot's famous textbook on physics."
Ambix"

"Simon has provided us with a detailed and authoritative study."
