Lavoisier in the Year One : Birth of a New Science in an Age of Revolution

Author(s): Madison Smartt Bell

Science - Popular

Antoine Lavoisier reinvented chemistry, overthrowing the long-established principles of alchemy and inventing a new terminology. Madison Smartt Bell's enthralling narrative reads like a race, as the circumstances that enabled Lavoisier to secure his reputation - a considerable fortune and social connections - also caused his glory to be cut short by the French Revolution.
