Everyone, no matter how well informed, will be able to learn some new things from this book… There is nothing else like it for a panorama of what people have chosen to call revolution in science.The New York Review of Books

[The author] has perfected a spacious study of the whole idea of revolution… Monumental scholarship… In sheer variety of riches this book has few parallels.Nature

[Cohen] is a scholar of extraordinary erudition… He may well know more history of science than any scholar now alive.Science

Professor Cohen’s Revolution in Science offers an impressive survey—with his own critical insights and interpretations—of the concept of revolutions. Only someone with his prodigious erudition and knowledge of the history of science could undertake such a project. In short, Professor Cohen’s book is wide-ranging in scope, packed with details of substance and interpretation, and will appeal to a similarly wide-ranging readership. It is a masterful study.—Joseph W. Dauben
