9781587659973: Contemporary Biographies in Chemistry

A supplement to Salem Press's Careers in Science series, a career-focused series exploring the fields and occupations of physics, chemistry, and other sciences with an emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) occupations and outlooks, Contemporary Biographies in Chemistry is a collection of biographies of 'living leaders' in the field of chemistry. Culled from the pages of Current Biography, the monthly magazine renowned for its unfailing accuracy, insightful selection and the wide scope of influence of its subjects, these up-to-date profiles draw from a variety of resources and are an invaluable source for researches, teachers, students, and librarians.

Contemporary Biographies in Chemistry features 31 profiles of notable people in the field of chemistry. In addition, an appendix consisting of 10 historical biographies of 'Great Chemists' is included, as well as geographical and personages indexes.

About the Author:

Donald R. Franceschetti, Professor, Department of Physics, The University of Memphis, USA.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6-9–Both of these titles reprint 31 arbitrarily chosen profiles originally published in Current Biography magazine, and, in a separate alphabet, 10 biographies of iconic scientists of the past in each field culled from the publisher's “Great Lives” series. Each entry opens with an overview of its subject's claim(s) to fame, then describes his or her career and, in relatively easy-to-understand language, “Life's Work.” In contrast to Einstein, the Curies, and other figures in the historical rosters, the living (at the time of publication) scientists–ranging from particle physicist Peter Higgs (b. 1929) to climatologist Katharine Hayhoe (b. 1972) in the physics volume and Carl Djerassi (b. 1923), inventor of the first birth control pill, to maverick geneticist Eva Harris (b.1965) in the chemistry volume–are still on their way to becoming household names. All merit recognition, though, for significant discoveries or achievements. The lack of illustrations and, for the historical articles, reading lists, along with the cursory name and place indexes capping each volume leave room aplenty for improvement. However, researchers and general readers considering careers in the sciences or looking for role models will be more drawn to these convenient compilations than to the prospect of leafing through periodical files or broader resources such as Elizabeth H. Oakes's Encyclopedia of World Scientists (Facts On File, 2007, rev. ed.). Each comes with a one-time activation key for a digital version.–John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2013.
