Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This fascinating book assembles human stories about physicists and
mathematicians. Remarkably, these stories cluster around some general themes
having to do with the interaction between scientists, and with the impact of
historic events - such as the advent of fascism and communism in the twentieth
century - on scientists' behavior. Briefly, but lucidly, some of the beautiful
science that brought these scientists together in the first place is explained.
