This three-volume set documents 245 key breakthroughs in the history of science from ancient times to the present day. Organized alphabetically, the cross-referenced entries cover milestones in areas such as anesthesia, game theory, magnetism, relativity, and stem cells. The focus is on the "pure" sciences of astronomy, chemistry, biology, geology, mathematics, and physics. Technological advances and inventions (such as the telephone or the airplane) are not generally covered. Accompanying the essays are 125 sidebars highlighting the scientists involved and their accomplishments.
