- a Journey, a New Country and the
Amazing Force of Scientific Discovery.

''In 1794, Joseph Priestley - amateur
scientist, ordained minister and radical
thinker - set sail for America to escape
persecution. Stephen Johnson tells his
incredible story: the discovery of oxygen,
the invention of a science, the founding
of a church, and, with the great minds of
his time, the development of the United
States itself. But Priestley's revolutionary
ideas put him in terrible danger. Johnson
uses the progress of Priestley and his
colleagues not merely to describe the
wonder of discovery, but to show us
how we have come to understand the
world, how far we have travelled with
the power of human enquiry - and how
one man's curiosity can help build an
entire country. ''
