9780195177244: An Age of Science and Revolutions, 1600-1800: The Medieval & Early Modern World

An Age of Science and Revolutions, 1600-1800, tells the colorful story of a pivotal period in human history, an era that is crucial to understanding our own times. The expansion of trade and city life, the spread and reform of religious institutions, the rise of regional empires and local feudal regimes, and revolutionary advances in science and technology laid the foundation for the modern world. Told through the words and experiences of the people who lived it- kings, queens, and commoners, priests and lay people, explorers, scientists, artists, and world travelers- this is a world history for a new generation.

About the Author:


Toby E. Huff was trained as a sociologist but has been increasingly drawn to questions in the history, philosophy and sociology of science. He taught sociology for thirty-four years at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth before becoming Chancellor Professor Emeritus in 2005. Since then he has been a Research Associate in the Department of Astronomy at Harvard University.

From Booklist:

Gr. 7-10. This volume in the new Medieval & Early Modern World series looks at 200 years of world history--a lot for one book. The first overview chapters on China, India, and the Middle East are less exciting than the second part of the book, which discusses the Enlightenment in Europe in some depth: the influence of world cultures, the challenge to established religion and science from great thinkers such as Copernicus, Galileo, Descartes, and Newton, and the way new confidence in science and technology changed politics and social customs. Color photos are on every page, and maps and boxed quotes and profiles are scattered through the text. An extensive glossary, a time line, sources for direct quotes, and a bibliography conclude the useful book, which may spark discussion about current controversies about connections between science and religion.
