Product description

Review

Review from previous edition ... a through and comprehensive account of Schwinger's life and work... a valuable testament to the life and legacy of Julian Schwinger (Lowell Brown, Physics World)

... the first full-length biography of Julian Schwinger ... scholarly and well done. The influence of Julian Schwinger on the physics of his time has been profound. (Robert Finkelstein, CERN Courier)

Mehra and Milton provide a great deal of material from interviews and archival files and thus help give us a fuller picture of Schwinger. Perhaps their most important contribution is their account of the evolution of many of Schwinger's thoughts. [...] It does shed light on a many-faceted genius. (Tian Yu Cao, Physics Today)
