About this title


In this unique book on the history of science, Green writes e-mails to Benjamin Franklin, who died in 1790 but whom Green imagines being now brought back to life, about developments over the past two centuries: I've written these emails assuming that you carried out the wish you described in 1773: I should prefer to any ordinary death, being immersed in a cask of Madeira wine . . . to be later recalled to life by the solar warmth of my dear country. These e-mails inform Franklin of progress in science, medicine and technology from his time until now. Includes more than seventy portraits of Franklin's friends and relatives, and of those researchers who have led medical and scientific advances during the past two centuries. Illustrations.


What does one write and tells one of the fathers of the country? "Dear Doctor Franklin: E-Mails to a Founding Father About Science, Medicine, and Technology" is a look into modern science, medicine, and technology, three things that Benjamin Franklin enjoyed studies of, in the form of faux e-mails to the long dead statesman. Covering two hundred years of development, this is a great introduction to the history of science as a whole, making "Dear Doctor Franklin: E-Mails to a Founding Father About Science, Medicine, and Technology" a highly recommended edition to community library science collections. --Midwest Book Review
