A new paperback edition of Dr. Bronowski's classic history of
humankind, with a foreword by Richard Dawkins
Dr. Jacob Bronowksi's classic traces the development of human
society through our understanding of science. First published in
1973 to accompany the groundbreaking BBC television series, it is
considered one of the first works of "popular science,"
illuminating the historical and social context of scientific
development for a generation of readers. In his highly accessible
style, Dr. Bronowski discusses human invention from the flint tool
to geometry, agriculture to genetics, and from alchemy to the
theory of relativity, showing how they all are expressions of our
ability to understand and control nature. In this new paperback
edition, "The Ascent of Man" inspires, influences, and informs as
profoundly as ever.
