Originally published: 1998.

Controversy is central to scientific development, and history holds countless examples of progression through argument.

This book chronicles ten of the hottest and most fascinating disputes over new discoveries and theories, such as the clash between Galileo and Pope Urban over whether the Earth revolved around the Sun, in which ideas as fundamental as the theory of evolution were strongly and realistically challenged.

It features controversies which range from the 17th to the 20th century, each one introducing a new theory or finding that had far-reaching effects on future work.
