'… a book that can be enjoyed by all interested in the history of science.' Scientific and Medical Network Review
'… the volume is striking for both its narrative and its original research.' Nature
'… a magnificent history of mathematics and physics …' New Scientist
'By revealing failures and foibles rather than telling conventional stories of truth and triumph, this book provides a multifaceted view of the past that places human beings centre-stage in science's history … these writers convincingly illustrate how even science's greatest heroes are idiosyncratic individuals enmeshed in a wide network of activists and interests … surprised and fascinated by the intricate cultural tapestry woven here.' Notes of Records of the Royal Society
