Niaz, Mansoor
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v37 n5 p480-508 May 2000
Develops a history and philosophy of science framework based on a rational reconstruction of experimental observations that led to the Millikan-Ehrenhaft controversy, and evaluates 31 chemistry books for coverage of the controversy. Finds that most books lacked a history and philosophy of science perspective and did not adequately address several aspects of the historical controversy. (Contains 84 references.) (Author/WRM)
