Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Describing the life of different people who participated in bacteriology's development is not a waste of effort.Many lessons can be learned from this book. You can discover the lives not only of famous personalities such as Louis Pasteur and Rober Koch, but also of less well-known names such as Louis Hughes and Henri Toussaint. Today, names such as lancefield, Petri, Escherich, and Proskauer may remind you of quotidian laboratory terms. Most of all, you can follow the birth and evolution of the fundamental concepts of bacteriology, such as spontaneous generation, transformation, do-it-all microbes, and antibiotics.May you find what you're looking for in this book, at whatever level of depth is required.

Synopsis:

This book describes the lives of the various actors who took part in the development of bacteriology from the origin to present times. It may be read on several levels, including the history of the science itself and as an introduction to the key pioneers in the field. We will see some names, such as Lancefield, Petri, Escherich or Proskauer, who helped shape the everyday work in laboratories around the world. But, above all, we will trace the birth and development of the great fundamental concepts of our scientific knowledge, such as spontaneous generation, transformism, and antibiosis.
