Summary: Some of the biggest breakthroughs in science have caused battles that have raged over decades, even centuries. In Great Feuds in Science, internationally celebrated science writer Hal Hellman tells the fascinating stories of ten of the most heated disputes in the history of science, from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries. From Galileo and Kelvin to Leakey and Einstein, Hellman introduces readers to the major players and the times they lived in, explains ...show more the scientific principles involved, and shows how such controversies are not only typical, but often necessary to the progress of science.
