16 tales of scientific success, illustrated in full colour
Scientific Sleuthing begins with New Zealanders solving “different” problems:
the cause of toxic honey ~ uses for our unique flora and fauna ~ paints that can withstand our harsh and temperamental climate.
But it unfolds into a world where globalisation has propelled New Zealand scientists to international standing:
seeking treatments for cancer ~ developing new processes ~ discovering compounds and materials that perform in ways that earlier generations could not have imagined.
In their chosen fields, New Zealand chemists lead the world.
This is a book about New Zealand’s development, and about history being made right here, right now.
Edited by Rebecca Hurrell, Andrew Muscroft-Taylor, Glyn Strange and Bryce Williamson
