After some introductory chapters, which provide a brief history of the beginning of civilization and particularly of the early contributions of the Jewish people, the author discusses the development of science up to the time of Maimonides and then to the period of the Renaissance and our modern period. The second half of his book is devoted to a listing of significant names of Jewish workers in many fields, including an extensive section on medicine. A final section is devoted to American Jewish scientists. There are also brief descriptions of recently established Jewish institutions of learning. The book is a useful reference work.
