Reviews of Krakatoa

Explosive science

by BruceHH on Nov 30, 2009

A very good book that ties a lot of science together, especially geology, with history using the explosion of the island known as Krakatoa. It is easily read and presents facts that are often neglected or overlooked because of the social hierarchy in science during the 18th and 19th and early 20th centuries. As the author notes, in a small section of one chapter, it may have fomented one of the first modern fundamentalist Muslim, anti-western revolts.
