Publisher Description

Dr Jacob Bronowksi's The Ascent of Man traces the development of human society through our understanding of science.

First published in 1973 to accompany the groundbreaking BBC television series, it is considered one of the first works of 'popular science', illuminating the historical and social context of scientific development for a generation of readers. In his highly accessible style, Dr Bronowski discusses human invention from the flint tool to geometry, agriculture to genetics, and from alchemy to the theory of relativity, showing how they all are expressions of our ability to understand and control nature.

In this new paperback edition, The Ascent of Man inspires, influences and informs as profoundly as ever.

Shame

It is a shame the way this classic was reproduced in the electronic form. Most pictures are gone. The text format is most primitive. This classic deserves better than this.

The Ascent of Man

What a rip-off of the 1973 highly illustrated book. Don't buy it, find the actual book. I am trying to get my money back.
