Grade 9 Up-Cities, tents, teepees, tunnels, tombs, rapid transit systems, bridges, gardens, cathedrals, skyscrapers and even a space station are just some of the “feats” included in this authoritative survey. From prehistory to the present, high-tech to low, more than 200 architectural and engineering achievements have been selected that reflect “humanity's propensity to `just do it'— against the odds” and the “social imperatives that stimulated people to push the available technology to its limits”. The volume includes articles on structures that are frequent subjects of reports (“Empire State Building”, “Great Wall of China”) and lesser-known works, as well as selected design movements.

Publication date: 2007-06-21
ISBN: 0199277559
Number of pages: 280

Size: 1,55 MB

How were Greek texts on the care and medical treatment of the horse transmitted from antiquity to the present day? Using the evidence of Byzantine manuscripts of the veterinary compilation known as the Hippiatrica, Anne McCabe traces the journey of the texts from the stables to the medieval scriptorium and ultimately to the printed edition. Surviving manuscripts include both magnificent presentation copies and plain ones intended for use in the field. The Hippiatrica is a rich and little-known source of information about horses, medicine, and magic. This book provides a guide to its complex history as well as a host of fascinating details, and includes color illustrations of a number of manuscript pages.

Name: Historical Encyclopedia of Natural and Mathematical Sciences
Author: Ari Ben-Menahem
Publisher: Springer
Publication date: 2009
ISBN: 3540688315
Number of pages: 5988
Format / Quality: rar -> pdf
Size: 50,1 MB

This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history – biography, chronology, political and economic background – with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics of science.

The 5800-page Encyclopedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopolitical boundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia tells (as the author himself puts it) "not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done."

The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys 100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists, engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing: mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, earth and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry), associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and more).

The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas in the leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 ‘Science Progress Reports’ detailing scientific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered from the wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times.

Grade 5 Up–This fact-filled, accessible revision of the excellent 1995 edition provides new material for researchers and general readers. It offers a comprehensive investigation of ancient Greece, from the dawning of Minoan civilization to the conquest of Rome–2000 years of a remarkable civilization that left an indelible imprint on human history. The original format of this volume has not changed, but many of the alphabetical articles have been updated and rewritten. New and expanded material includes pieces on Aesop, architecture, black peoples, Euripides, Jews, magic, land warfare, the climate and landscape of Greece, and wine. In addition, there are modern transliterations of ancient Greek (e.g., Hephaistos instead of Hephaestus), and a bibliography after each entry. Accurate cross-references, an information-packed time line, and a thorough index add to the volume's usefulness. The black-and-white maps, photographs, and illustrations are all high quality. This is a first-rate purchase for libraries on a topic of endless inquiry and fascination.–Hillary Jan Donitz-Goldstein, formerly at New York Public Library
