From the Foreword by Dr Baldev Raj ….Dr. B.V. Subbarayappa, a legend, distinguished scholar and internationally well-known historian of science, in his current book titled “Landmarks in Science : A Historical Perspective”; along with his earlier, works, especially the one on “Modern Science: A Historical and Social Perspective”, has provided us with a foundational source-book for starting teaching courses in history of science. His contributions, works and perspectives are well-structured and designed to evolve interest and fascination in the young and not so young readers in India and abroad, even though his several books, as expected, have more coverage about Indian scientific heritage. His recent book along with related works on science in India and elsewhere can be the bedrock of designing history of science course. India need to recognize history of science and technology as an academic discipline in our Universities and there is great need to understand the origin and nature of traditional sciences, the transition from the traditional thinking to the Renaissance in Science, and the emergence as well as the growth of the new methodology- based knowledge-system, called modern science. Dr. Subbarayappa’s book, Landmarks in Science: A Historical Perspective, has ably delineated these three phases. Printed Pages: 330.
