Science and Civilisation in China [9780521087322]

  • Joseph Needham, who died in 1995, was the greatest British historian of China of the last 100 years.

Joseph Needham reflects on possible answers to this question in the concluding volume of this series and provides fascinating insights into his great intellectual quest.
