The everyday practice of historical scholarship is by necessity small-scaled and specialized. This essential volume for historians of science reveals how scholars in their everyday practice can work to maintain a sense of a larger purpose. The contributors were encouraged to expand their intimate experience with particular subjects to create works with a broad appeal to scholars in many disciplines. The essays are meant to be exemplars of a historiographical genre that achieve general interest in ways that are participatory, grass-roots, and non-directive.
