Landmarks in Western Science

From prehistory to the atomic age
by Peter Whitfield

Landmarks in Western Science is a concise account of the history of science squeezed into 245 pages. Divided into eight chapters, the book goes over the most important facets and breakthroughs in science (and their effects on people's view of the world) from ancient Egypt to the twentieth century. It is a relatively easy read, and numerous illustrations liven up the pages. Recommendable for anyone who is interested in science, its history, and its conflict with religion.
