20th Century Science and Technology is a decade-by-decade account of scientists and their breakthroughs, inventors and their inventions, that have shaped the modern world. A fact-filled text and both full-color and duotone photographs come together to create an exciting presentation of scientific and technological progress in conjunction with other history-making world events of the time.

By the end of the twentieth century, science and technology had affected daily life more during its one hundred years than in the previous five thousand years. Electronic technology, in particular, virtually changed the nature of reality. Medical research can now "fingerprint" and mend human genes. The challenge of the twenty-first century will be making sure that twentieth century achievements are used safely, ethically, and for the benefit of all.
