A Concise History of Science in India (Second Edition)

B.V. Subbarayappa

Orient BlackSwan/ Universities Press, 2009. Softcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. India`s contributions in the field of science have been very influential in the development of human civilisation. The decimal place value system and the Ayurvedic way of life are just two well-known legacies of this ancient culture. Yet there are only a few books which provide an unbiased and authentic view of this world. One reason for this is that the study of Indian science through the ages involves the complex integration of the knowledge of many languages and diverse scientific disciplines. Through the years, there has been growing interest in this study as an important aspect in understanding man`s interaction with nature, his material life and cultural patterns. The Indian National Science Academy, through its History of Science Board (1958) and the National Commission for the Compilation of History of Sciences in India (1967) renamed in 1989 as the Indian National Commission for History of Science sought further means to stimulate this interest among universities and scholars. The result was the publication of A Concise History of Science in India. This book attempts to present a brief account of the development of science from early times to Independence, in one of the most ancient civilisations of the world. After nearly four decades since its publication, A Concise History of Science in India remains one of the most extensive and authentic account of Indian science through the ages. Yet further studies in the field have brought to light new material. This revised edition, taken up by B V Subbarayappa, one of the three original editors, seeks to integrate the new information with the knowledge already at hand. Printed Pages: 980.

PHI Learning, 2006. 3rd edition. Hardcover. New. This well-established text, now substantially revised and updated, provides compre-hensive coverage of biochemistry in the overall context of body function (and dysfunction). Though as originally envisaged, the text is written primarily for the medical student to be useful at all stages of medical education (and not only during preclinical years) its special features and coverage would also considerably help the graduate and postgraduate students of general biology and life sciences. The significant features of this new edition have been the major revisions by way of incorporating the recent advances in chapters dealing with human genetics, biochemical and molecular basis of inheritance, expression of genetic information, genetic engineering, immunology and present-day progress in vaccinology. The clinical biochemistry has been given special emphasis. The core chapters on cellular reactions, metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins and their interrelationship have been updated so as to equip the medical students with the knowledge to relate these with the diagnosis and monitoring of diseases.
