Reviews

The Physicists is the indispensable classic history--an epic guide to an epic drama. No one who wants to understand the twentieth century can afford to be without it.--James Gleick, author of Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman
[An] uncommonly good book.--John Leonard "New York Times"
A colorful, thoughtful, and accessible survey.-- "Los Angeles Times Book Review"
One of the most interesting, readable, well-researched, and informative books yet addressed to the institutional history of science in America.--David Hollinger "Chronicle of Higher Education"
A well-documented, beautifully written study of the scientific work of American physicists and of the intellectual and political milieu in which all the sciences--especially the physical sciences in the United States--subsisted in the 150-year period from 1830 to 1980... An outstanding example of dedicated scholarship that readers of many different backgrounds and interests will find both authoritative and fascinating.--Joseph F. Mulligan "Science Book and Films"
