"The unifying theme of this book is that all experiences leave a stamp on both physical and mental characteristics. I have placed special emphasis on the very early influences, prenatal as well as postnatal, because their effects are so profound and lasting that they have large consequences for human life. From juvenile delinquency to racial conflicts, from artistic sensibilities to national genius, few are the individual and social characteristics that are not profundly and lastingly affected by early influences."

"Pasteur and Modern Science, by René Dubos, is here reprinted in a new and expanded hardcover edition. Pasteur's stunning career has attracted a host of biographies, but the Dubos book is among the best ... Not updated to the present to the present day in an expert new edition by the distinguished microbiologist Thomas D. Brock, the book also has a new foreword by the Pasteur scholar Gerald L. Geison that places the book in historical context. More than forty illustrations and tables have been added, as well as glossary and additional text. For high school and college undergraduate students, and for the general reader, this is the ideal introduction to the life of Louis Pasteur."--Back cover

Oswald Theodore Avery is little known outside of the scientific community. Yet, this extraordinary man, here brought vividly to life by a perceptive friend and sophisticated scientific colleague, was a monumental force in the development of medical research in the United States. Even among scientists, Avery is known chiefly as the senior author of a paper published in 1944 that identified DNA as the purveyor of genetic information. Two things make this highly personalized biography a landmark volume. First, its technical chapters clarify the philosophical concepts that lie behind today's understanding of the immunology of bacterial infection. Second, not a single existing textbook has ever described the laborious methods by which the men in Avery's laboratory discovered the genetic import of DNA
