At ten minutes past midday on Easter Monday, April 24, 1916, thirty members of James Connolly’s Irish Citizen Army launched a raid on Dublin Castle--the citadel of British rule in Ireland. Although what happened next has become an integral touchstone of Irish independence, as well as the subject of many political, military, diplomatic, and local studies, no source has described the events of the Easter Rising as seen through the eyes of those who lived through it--until now. Based on a recently un-archived trove of over 1,700 eye-witness statements, The Rising tells the story of this sem

Gregor Johann Mendel is known as the father of modern genetics. He used cross-breeding to develop different kinds of peas. This allowed him to make predictions about the outcomes of various crosses. These are now called Mendel’s Laws of Heredity. They explain how traits are passed from generation to generation due to dominant and recessive genes.

This introduction to the history of science in the seventeenth century examines the so-called ’scientific revolution’ in terms of the interplay between two major themes. The Platonic-Pythagorean tradition looked on nature in geometric terms with the conviction that the cosmos was constructed according to the principles of mathematical order, while the mechanical philosophy conceived of nature as a huge machine and sought to explain the hidden mechanisms behind phenomena. Pursuing different goals, these two movements of thought tended to conflict with each other, and more than the o
