Books Are Weapons Books have wielded an immense power for good and evil throughout the history of the human race. Here is a thoughtful and probing discussion of sixteen of the most important works of all time which influenced history, economics, culture, civilization, and scientific thought from the Renaissance to the present day. Such widely different, but immensely powerful books as Hitler’s Mein Kampf, which foreshadowed the death and destruction of World War II, Harvey’s famous volume on blood circulation which revolutionized medical theory and treatment, Einstein’s theories on relativity which opened the atomic age are clearly described in this provocative and readable volume. Dr. Downs, former President of the American Library Association and head of the University of Illinois Library, also shows the widespread and decisive influence of other great works, including Newton’s presentation of his discovery of the laws of gravity, a cornerstone in scientific theory today, Darwin’s Origin of Species which many churchmen thought contradicted the Bible, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin which is considered one of the major causes of the American Civil War, and Freud’s Interpretation of Dreams, the great volume from the man who revolutionized modern man’s thoughts about himself. Altogether, here is a fascinating presentation of books from many times which shows the tremendous power of the printed word on human development.

A Publishers Weekly best book of 1995! Dr. Michael Guillen, known to millions as the science editor of ABC's Good Morning America, tells the fascinating stories behind five mathematical equations. As a regular contributor to daytime's most popular morning news show and an instructor at Harvard University, Dr. Michael Guillen has earned the respect of millions as a clear and entertaining guide to the exhilarating world of science and mathematics.
