Product description


Aaserud and Heilbron have given us a fine book, a handsome memento to this centenary year of Bohrs monumental work. (Graham Farmelo, THE)

Aaserud and Heilbron have given us a truly delightful book. It is high time that someone wrote his biography to bring his achievements to the attention of the public and to the many physicists who appear to be largely unaware of his intellectual breadth and depth, his huge influence and, above all, his nobility. Aaserud and Heilbron have convinced me that it is not only Niels Bohr who deserves a full-scale, accessible biography - his wife does, too. (Graham Farmelo, THE)

This is a unique contribution to the fanfare around the centenary of Bohr's theory: it incorporates archivist Finn Aaserud's assemblage of previously unpublished letters between Bohr and his family, and a reprint of Bohr's 'Trilogy' of papers. (Nature July 2013)

The book is amply references and contains helpful black-and-white illustrations. Valuable for serious students of the early development of quantum physics. Recommended. (M. Dickinson, Choice,)

About the Author

Finn Aaserud is Director of the Niels Bohr Archive, Copenhagen. John L. Heilbron is Professor of History and Vice-Chancellor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, and Honorary Fellow at Worcester College, Oxford.
