Summary

The Birth of the Cell. Henry Harris. Yale University Press, New Haven, 1999. 224 pp. $30. ISBN 0-300-07384-4.

Paying particular attention to the original literature, Harris provides a history of the cell doctrine that illuminates the contributions of those who actually made the discoveries, not merely the better-known researchers who elaborated the theory.
