5.0 out of 5 stars Russia under Stalin and the Purges, 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fictional version of the history of Stalin's purges and the Terror of the 1930s in the Soviet Union. Harrowing but beautifully written by someone who experienced the era as an early revolutionary, was then in Russia until the fall of Trotsky, afterwards travelling, living precariously and writing articles in several countries. The fate of a number of the first generation of revolutionaries and the workings of the structure which ma he'd threi demise is vividly portrayed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Equations for everyman, 23 Feb. 2012
A mathematician of fifty years ago has advantages over the curious non-scientist in reading this but not many. It comes through beautifully on Kindle, diagrams and all. It is rich in examples of the various developments which the equations have led to and a valuable addition to the history of science.
