In this wide-ranging and authoritative account, Sumner reveals the complex processes that led to the creation of 'brewing science' from books, vats, instruments and philosophies. His lively survey opens up new avenues for understanding the circulation of knowledge and the emergence of new scientific disciplines."" - Jim Secord, University of Cambridge
