Description: This revolutionary set highlights, not just the "what" of science, but more important the "why, " the "how, " and the "who." Science and Society brings science to life by showing students the factors that motivate research and how scientists compete and collaborate with one another. Each book demonstrates the connections between science and society, especially in controversial areas, and illustrates how society supports science and science supports society. The set elucidates the real, colorful personalitie of the people behind the sciences.

Quarks and Sparks details the complex history of nuclear science, from the concept of the atom invented by ancient Greek philosophers to the search by present-day physicists for concrete evidence of the Higgs force field. It also covers the people, events, and motivations that led up to modern-day discoveries and examines society's attitudes, questions, and concerns about nuclear science. The public's dramatically shifting perceptions are clearly described -- from relative indifference to early scientific advances to well-informed awareness of the issues of the nuclear age we live in.
