DUTCH LIGHT: Christiaan Huygens and the Making of Science in Europe

This work is a vivid account of Huygen's remarkable life and career, but it is also nothing less than the story of the birth of modern science as we know it. Among his many achievements, he developed the theory of light traveling as a wave, invented the mechanism for the pendulum clock, and discovered the rings of Saturn, via a telescope that he had also invented. Photos, many in color.
