Lavoisier in the Year One: The Birth of a New Science in an Age of Revolution (Great Discoveries) Madison Smartt Bell read online review & book description:

"Fresh…solid…full of suspense and intrigue." —Publishers Weekly

Antoine Lavoisier reinvented chemistry, overthrowing the long-established principles of alchemy and inventing an entirely new terminology, one still in use by chemists. Madison Smartt Bell’s enthralling narrative reads like a race to the finish line, as the very circumstances that enabled Lavoisier to secure his reputation as the father of modern chemistry—a considerable fortune and social connections with the likes of Benjamin Franklin—also caused his glory to be cut short by the French Revolution.
