The Scientific Revolution in Global Perspective

The Scientific Revolution in Global Perspective

In his new book with Oxford University Press, Prof. William Burns places the Scientific Revolution--and its causes and effects--in a global context. Rather than taking a Eurocentric position, Burns fully reimagines the emergence of modern science on a global scale. Written in a clear, direct style and rich with examples, The Scientific Revolution in Global Perspective fluidly integrates the history of the Scientific Revolution into the story of world history in a convincing and seamless fashion. Based on cutting-edge scholarship, it reveals the wider motivations and global connections of scientific innovation and provides students with a new appreciation for the origins of the global, technological world around them.
