Summary

The idea that matter might consist of atoms occurred to a few Greek philosophers almost 2,500 years ago, but was essentially forgotten until chemists in the late seventeenth century began to break down substances into chemical elements. This book traces the history of atomic discovery from ancient Greek theories about four basic elements to today's research into nanotechnology.
