Review
Gr 7 Up?A look at 10 Hispanic Americans who have made important contributionsin various fields of science since the end of World War II. Luis Alvarez, Francisco Dallmeier, Adriana Ocampo, Margarita Colmenares, and Ellen Ochoa are amongthe individuals profiled. Each entry includes basic information about the scientist's date and place of birth, parents' backgrounds, childhood interests, education, and a description of his or her personal and professional achievements. Oleksy interviewed all of the scientists except Alvarez, who died in 1988. Quotes from these interviews enliven the text. Some of the people commented onhow being Hispanic American has impacted on their careers and they offer adviceto students. The lists of further reading at the end of each chapter include books by the scientists and materials on related topics. Good-quality black-and-white photos appear throughout. This title will be useful for reports and for teachers seeking to highlight the achievements of contemporary scientists.?Carolyn Angus, The Claremont Graduate School, CA
