    schema:description "A Companion to the History of American Science presents an authoritative overview of the most recent scholarship on the history of American science - from the intellectual curiosity of the Founding Fathers to the country's cutting-edge technological achievements in the 21st century. Featuring contributions from a wide range of established and emerging scholars in related scientific fields, essays explore specific sciences, the intersections of modern science and American society, and techno-science issues in American science historiography. Essays are written with an eye toward accessibility for students, scholars, and nonspecialists alike, and cover topics ranging from astronomy, agriculture, biology, chemistry, ecology, and eugenics to relativity, military technology, Big Science, and many more. A key theme is the fundamental question of how the United States - with so few scientific resources and lagging far behind its European counterparts at the beginning of the 19th century - so rapidly developed into an influential and productive scientific community. A Companion to the History of American Science offers illuminating insights into the histories of various disciplines and important topics in the two-and-a half century narrative of scientific minds, policies, and events that transpired in the United States.--Book Jacket."@en ;
