American Heritage Science Dictionary
This dictionary for nonspecialists is designed with the idea of helping to reinvigorate scientific curiosity in America. Editors Pickett, Spitz, and Groat, whose backgrounds lie in science and linguistics, compile more than 8,500 terms in all fields of science, along with brief biographies of many of history's influential scientific thinkers, from Aristotle to Stephen Hawking. Each entry offers a clear definition; some include extended discussions.
