Niels Bohr: a centenary volume.
Niels Bohr: A Centenary Volume -- A.P. French and P.J. Kennedy, Eds. Eminent British physicist G.P. Thomson said of Niels Bohr that "Bohr's influence on science is only partially expressed in his published work, great as this was. He led science through the most fundamental change of attitude it has made since Galileo and Newton, by the greatness of his intellect and the wisdom of his judgments. But quite apart from their unbounded admiration for his achievements, the scientists of all nations felt for him an affection which has perhaps never been equalled." This tribute combines penetrating assessments by outstanding scientists with selections from some of Bohr's most influential writings. Harvard U Pr, 1985, 403 p., illus., $27.50. (See p. 26.)
