Product description


From the reviews of the second edition:

"It is a unique publication, a perfect work of human knowledge would certainly expand the horizon of scholars of different fields and the common reader with quest of knowledge. … No doubt, this book will prove to be an asset to the students, research scholars, teachers, of any scientific or other fields, hunting for knowledge." (N. C. Shah, Herbal Tech Industry, November, 2008)

"The second edition of this outstanding title ... has been updated and expanded with approximately 1,000 entries, 1,374 high-quality (black-and-white and color) figures, and 107 tables. ... Certain subjects, or sections, are divided into numerous articles with references. ... Summing Up: Essential. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers." (S. Markgren, Choice, Vol. 46 (3), November, 2008)

"This two-volume work covers a wealth of information on the development of the sciences and medical arts in non-Occidental cultures. … entries are printed in a clear, sharp and readable type. … doubtless will be seen as a worthwhile purchase for many major research institutions. … anyone with an interest in this field will benefit from an extensive perusal of the entries within the work." (Gareth J. Johnson, Reference Reviews, Vol. 23, 2009)

“This encyclopedia serves as a good marker of the changing status of the global in histories of science. … One of the most praiseworthy achievements of this encyclopedia is the broad definition of science, technology and medicine employed. … those who dip into this one will have their curiosity aroused for much more.” (Sujit Sivasundaram, British Journal for the History of Science, June, 2010)
