Science and Technology in World History: An Introduction
James E. McClellan and Harold DornNow in its second edition, this bestselling textbook may be the single most influential study of the historical relationship between science and technology ever published. Tracing this relationship from the dawn of civilization through the twentieth century, James E. McClellan III and Harold Dorn argue that technology as "applied science" emerged relatively recently, as industry and governments began funding scientific research that would lead directly to new or improved technologies. McClellan and Dorn identify two great scientific traditions: the useful sciences, patronized by the state from the dawn of civilization, and scientific theorizing, initiated by the ancient Greeks. They find that scientific traditions took root in China, India, and Central and South America, as well as in a series of Near Eastern empires, during late antiquity and the Middle Ages. From this comparative perspective, the authors explore the emergence of Europe and the United States as a scientific and technological power. The new edition reorganizes its treatment of Greek science and significantly expands its coverage of industrial civilization and contemporary science and technology with new and revised chapters devoted to applied science, the sociology and economics of science, globalization, and the technological systems that underpin everyday life.
The Fourth Paradigm: Data-Intensive Scientific Discovery
Tony Hey, Stewart Tansley and Kristin TolleThis book presents the first broad look at the rapidly emerging field of data-intensive science, with the goal of influencing the worldwide scientific and computing research communities and inspiring the next generation of scientists. Increasingly, scientific breakthroughs will be powered by advanced computing capabilities that help researchers manipulate and explore massive datasets. The speed at which any given scientific discipline advances will depend on how well its researchers collaborate with one another, and with technologists, in areas of eScience such as databases, workflow management, visualization, and cloud-computing technologies. This collection of essays expands on the vision of pioneering computer scientist Jim Gray for a new, fourth paradigm of discovery based on data-intensive science and offers insights into how it can be fully realized.
MILLER LEVINE BIOLOGY 2010 ON-LEVEL STUDENT EDITION (NATL)
Pearson EducationMiller and Levine Biology ©2010: A Biology Curriculum by Pearson Miller & Levine Biology Curriculum - High School The respected author team of Ken Miller and Joe Levine are back with a new edition of biology books to inspire students to interact with trusted and up-to-date biology content. The authors' unique storytelling style engages students in biology, with a greater focus on written and visual analogies. Research and Validity Pearson is proud of the fact that for over half a century we have used a variety of types of research as a base on which to build our instructional materials. Over the years, we have worked collaboratively with our authors to make continual program improvements based on empirical, scientific research. Authors Mr. Miller grew up in Rahway, New Jersey, attended the local public schools, and graduated from Rahway High School in 1966. Miller attended Brown University on a scholarship and graduated with honors. He was awarded a National Defense Education Act fellowship for graduate study, and earned his Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Colorado. Miller is Professor of Biology at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he teaches courses in general biology and cell biology.Miller’s research specialty is the structure of biological membranes. He has published more than 70 research papers in journals such as CELL, Nature and Scientific American. In 1999, he wrote the popular trade book Finding Darwin’s God.Miller lives with his wife, Jody, on a small farm in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. He is the father of two daughters, one of whom is a wildlife biologist. He swims competitively in the masters’ swimming program and umpires high school and collegiate softball. Mr. Levine was born in Mount Vernon, New York, where he attended public schools. He earned a B.S. in Biology at Tufts University, a master’s degree from the Boston University Marine Program, and a Ph.D. at Harvard University. His research has been published in scientific journals ranging from Science to Scientific American, and in several academic books. He taught introductory biology, marine ecology, and neurobiology for six years at Boston College. After receiving a Macy Fellowship in Science Broadcast Journalism at WGBH-TV, Levine dedicated himself to improving public understanding of science. His popular writing has appeared in five trade books and in magazines such as Smithsonian, GEO, and Natural History. He has produced science features for National Public Radio and has designed exhibit programs for state aquarium projects in Texas, New Jersey, and Florida. Since 1987, Levine has served as scientific advisor at WGBH, where he worked on NOVA programs and on projects including the film Cocos: Island of Sharks and the series The Secret of Life. Most recently, he served as Science Editor for The Evolution Project. Levine and his family live in Concord, Massachusetts, a short distance from Thoreau’s Walden Pond.

Early Greek Science: Thales to Aristotle
G. E. R. LloydAlthough there is no exact equivalent to our term science in Greek, Western science may still be said to have originated with the Greeks, for they were the first to attempt to explain natural phenomena consistently in naturalistic terms, and they initiated the practices of rational criticism of scientific theories.This study traces Greek science through the work of the Pythagoreans, the Presocratic natural philosophers, the Hippocratic writers, Plato, the fourth-century B.C. astronomers, and Aristotle. G. E. R. Lloyd also investigates the relationships between science and philosophy and science and medicine; he discusses the social and economic setting of early Greek science; and he analyzes the motives and incentives of the different groups of writers.

School: The Story of American Public Education
Esteemed historians of education David Tyack, Carl Kaestle, Diane Ravitch, James Anderson, and Larry Cuban journey through history and across the nation to recapture the idealism of our education pioneers, Thomas Jefferson and Horace Mann. We learn how, in the first quarter of the twentieth century, massive immigration, child labor laws, and the explosive growth of cities fueled school attendance and transformed public education, and how in the 1950s public schools became a major battleground in the fight for equality for minorities and women. The debate rages on: Do today's reforms challenge our forebears' notion of a common school for all Americans? Or are they our only recourse today?This lavishly illustrated companion book to the acclaimed PBS documentary, School, is essential reading for anyone who cares about public education.
