Science History Institute/Gregory Tobias. The career of William Crookes was one of the most unusual in Victorian England

Science History Institute/Gregory Tobias. William Crookes (1832–1919) and the Commercialization of Science. The career of William Crookes was one of the most unusual in Victorian England. Thus this book illustrates more general social attitudes toward science in the late 19th century, perhaps most spectacularly with the ruling by a judge in a patent case that in a liberal construction, copper is tin. Crookes emerges as a major figure in 19th- and 20th-century science, and historians will long be grateful to Brock for tracking Crookes’s role in the development of science in virtually all its aspects.

William H. Brock is Emeritus Professor of History of Science at the University of Leicester. Aside from short spells of teaching in Toronto, Melbourne, and Philadelphia, Brock remained at Leicester for his teaching career, where he became Director of the Victorian Studies Centre. His publications have centred on the history of chemistry, Victorian science education, and the development of scientific periodicals, and include The Case of the Poisonous Socks (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011).

This set of essays - four, including the long title essay, being published here for the first time - reflects the author's long interest in the science and culture of the Victorian period. The first section examines the patronage of science and the activities of the British Association of the Advancement of Science and the Cavendish Society. The following one explores natural theology and natural history, and the impact of German scientists on British culture. Ten essays on science education then provide a broad perspective, as well as specific insights into heurism, technical education in periodicals, school examinations, and the unexpected role of Japan in stimulating educational innovation in Britain. In addition, Professor Brock addresses the long history of the linkage made between poor science education and national decline, and Britain's continuing need to enhance the opportunities of Science for All.
