Most widely held works by René J Dubos
Only one earth : the care and maintenance of a small planet by Barbara Ward( Book )

57 editions published between 1972 and 1983 in English and held by 2,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines our environmental problems from a global perspective. The problems are cast into their social, economic and political dimensions. Population, misuse of resources, the impact of technology, unbalanced development, and the world-wide dilemma of urbanization are explored. The authors have sought to report what is known and not known about the human environment. They point up the differences in values among individuals and nations which account for sharp disagreements as to present dangers and the means to a more harmonious balance between the natural and man-made environments. The book was prepared on commission for the United Nations, and provided a conceptual basis for the United Nations Conference on Human Environment, 1972, held in Stockholm. (Jp)
So human an animal by René J Dubos( Book )

42 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The unifying theme of this book is that all experiences leave a stamp on both physical and mental characteristics. I have placed special emphasis on the very early influences, prenatal as well as postnatal, because their effects are so profound and lasting that they have large consequences for human life. From juvenile delinquency to racial conflicts, from artistic sensibilities to national genius, few are the individual and social characteristics that are not profundly and lastingly affected by early influences." [Foreword]

"Pasteur and Modern Science, by René Dubos, is here reprinted in a new and expanded hardcover edition. Pasteur's stunning career has attracted a host of biographies, but the Dubos book is among the best ...

Geison that places the book in historical context. More than forty illustrations and tables have been added, as well as glossary and additional text. For high school and college undergraduate students, and for the general reader, this is the ideal introduction to the life of Louis Pasteur."--Back cover

"The moving story of a daughter's quest to discover the truth about her beloved father's hidden past. Ada Sibelius is raised by David, her brilliant, eccentric, socially inept single father, who directs a computer science lab in 1980s-era Boston. Home-schooled, Ada accompanies David to work every day; by twelve, she is a painfully shy prodigy. The lab begins to gain acclaim at the same time that David's mysterious history comes into question. When his mind begins to falter, leaving Ada virtually an orphan, she is taken in by one of David's colleagues. Soon after she embarks on a mission to uncover her father's secrets: a process that carries her from childhood to adulthood. What Ada discovers on her journey into a virtual universe will keep the reader riveted until The Unseen World's heart-stopping, fascinating conclusion."--Provided by publisher
The professor, the institute, and DNA by René J Dubos( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oswald Theodore Avery is little known outside of the scientific community. Yet, this extraordinary man, here brought vividly to life by a perceptive friend and sophisticated scientific colleague, was a monumental force in the development of medical research in the United States. Even among scientists, Avery is known chiefly as the senior author of a paper published in 1944 that identified DNA as the purveyor of genetic information. Two things make this highly personalized biography a landmark volume. First, its technical chapters clarify the philosophical concepts that lie behind today's understanding of the immunology of bacterial infection. Second, not a single existing textbook has ever described the laborious methods by which the men in Avery's laboratory discovered the genetic import of DNA
