Louis Agassiz Creator of American Science


Louis Agassiz Creator of American Science
Louis Agassiz: Creator of American Science by Dr Christoph Irmscher
English | 5 Feb. 2013 | ISBN: 0547577672 | 517 Pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Charismatic and controversial, Louis Agassiz is our least known revolutionary-some fifty years after American independence, he became a founding father of American science. Irmscher adds unflinching evidence of Agassiz's racist impulses and shows how avidly Americans looked to men of science to mediate race policy.
