The goal of this series is to help students comprehend the work that goes into scientific research and how this work leads to new applications and even future scientific advances. These books are about “Research,” not just the scientific concepts. Beginning with a timeline of the important events in each area of research, these books use clear and visual narratives to educate the readers about the cutting edge research. Well-chosen anecdotes illuminate the ethical and political issues in pursuing deeper scientific study and medical trials. Embedded key word definitions allow the student to easily identify the main issues. These books show what we learned about each issue, and more importantly, how we learned it. Though written by various authors, there is a high level of continuity between titles. Each book includes full-color photos and illustrations, related organizations, source notes, and further resources. This series would be a good addition to any library. Glossary. Table of Contents.
