Knowledge and Power: Science in World History / William E. Burns

The book was both concise and informative at the same time. If you want to know how science was transferred from a culture to culture; or from a continent to continent I recommend this book. It also talks about the influence of science in power which is very interesting as it touches on topics such as Imperialism and Jesuits.
