Product description


With his early death in action at Gallipoli, physicist Henry Moseley, nominated for a Nobel Prize, was one among many tragic losses to science in the Great War. This meticulously researched and lucidly composed compendium traces the features of his young life and the breadth of his enduring legacy. It is to be highly recommended.' --Sir John Meurig Thomas FRS. Former Director of the Royal Institution; Former Master of Peterhouse, Cambridge

This is a most welcome and long-overdue major new study on the much-neglected Henry Moseley. The comprehensive treatment of Moseley s life, work and legacy given here also provides an illuminating view of many exciting scientific developments in the 20th century in their broader social settings. This is a very rich and well-rounded collection, made possible by a judicious combination of technical and contextual approaches --Professor Hasok Chang, Hans Rausing Professor of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge.
