17 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The textbooks written by Adolphe Ganot played a major role in shaping the way physics was taught in schools. Simon's Franco-British case study looks at the role of two of Ganot's books. The study is novel for its international comparison of 19th-century physics and for its emphasis on the communication of science rather than on the science itself
Beyond borders : fresh perspectives in history of science by Néstor Herrán( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does scientific knowledge circulate? Does scientific communication shape the making of science? Is the making of science a national endeavour or does it have an international or transnational dimension? Are teaching and research equally relevant in this endeavour? How can history of science react to the challenges posed by the changing practices of science in historical context? Beyond Borders is a book generated at the heart of these fundamental questions. In the last decades, the histo

Communicating physics : the production, circulation and appropriation of Ganot's textbooks in France and England, 1851-1887 by Josep Simon( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The textbooks written by Adolphe Ganot (1804-1887) played a major role in shaping the way physics was taught in the nineteenth century. Ganot's books were translated from their original French into more than ten languages ... Simon's Franco-British case study looks at the role of Ganot's two textbooks: Traité élémentaire de physique expérimentale et appliqueé (1851) and Cours de physique purement expérimentale (1859), and their translations into English by Edmund Atkinson. The study is novel for its international comparison of nineteenth-century physics, its acknowledgement of the role of book production on the impact of the titles, and for its emphasis on the role of communication in the making of science."--Back cover
