Editorial Reviews for this title:
"The Sciences, 5th Edition" integrates major concepts from physics, chemistry, astronomy, earth sciences, and biology to help anyone become science-literate. Even readers with little or no science background will find this unique book an indispensable guide to understanding the latest headlines, controversies, and scientific developments. The new edition keeps pace with the dynamic nature of the sciences by incorporating the most up-to-date discoveries in all five disciplines.

Organized around a series of 24 scientific concepts (or great ideas), this book begins with the idea that the universe can be studied by observation and experiment. Encompasses physics, chemistry, astronomy, biology and earth sciences, focusing on general principles and their application to real-world situations rather than esoteric detail. Integrates the sciences rather than treating them separately. Offers students the ability to place major public issues such as the environment, energy and medical advances in a scientific context. Also examines social or philosophical issues related to science, such as the Human Genome Project and nuclear waste disposal.
