Summary:Four years in the making, the Academic Press Dictionary of Science and Technology is a 2,432 page work covering 124 fields of science.

If your corporate, academic, or institutional library serves any of these, then the Academic Press Dictionary of Science and Technology is perfect. The definitions are clear and accessible to the nonspecialist, yet they provide all the technical information that the specialist needs. Entries range from large general fields, such as Medicine, to newer, highly focused fields, such as Chaos
