High school chemistry textbook written to encompass five components identified in the work's preface as key to chemistry education: to go beyond imparting information, but also to train in critical scientific investigative thinking; cover the generalizations of the laws of chemistry; demonstrate the application of chemical laws; review the groundwork theories on which the field has been built upon; and reveal "the human side" of science. The volume contains black and white print illustrations including portraits of well-known scientists such as Sir Humphry Davy, Sir William Ramsay, John Dalton, Michael Faraday, Antoine Lavoisier, Henry Cavendish, and Joseph Priestley.
