This four-volume reference is appropriate for high school students and above. Information is arranged alphabetically by topic, and the first volume also includes topical and overview essays. The articles reflect historical scholarship; the scientific content engages those areas that are no longer changing and thus represent historical objects of study. Most entries start with the 17th century, following some preliminary discussion of the roots of the various achievements in antiquity and the Middle Ages. Since they vary in difficulty, the entries that require pre-existing knowledge include cross-references and definitions in the margins. A cross-disciplinary chronology and b&w photographs and drawings are included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
