Product description

Review

"Ball's book shows what can happen to morality when cleverness and discovery are valued above all else" (Philip Maughan New Statesman)

"Ball does an outstanding service by reminding us how powerful and sometimes confusing the pressures were… Packed with dramatic, moving and even comical moments" (Robert P Crease Nature)

"A fascinating account of the moral dilemmas faced by German physicists working within Nazism. Impeccably researched" (Ian Thomson Tablet)

"An engrossing and disturbing book" (Andrew Robinson History Today)

"[A] fine book" (Christopher Coker Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description

An incisive and revealing exploration of the fate of physics under the Nazis – and how scientific idealism led to accommodation with a totalitarian regime.
