Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungAs a former colleague of Oppenheimer's, Bernstein has composed a narrative that is both personal and historical, bringing the reader closer to the life and workings of an extraordinary and controversial man.
PortraitFor nearly three decades Jeremy Bernstein wrote profiles of scientists for the New Yorker. Many were prize-winners, and his book Einstein was nominated for the National Book Award. But he hesitated to write about Oppenheimer until now. Mr. Bernstein, a theoretical physicist best known for his nonscientific work, has also written The Dawning of the Raj and The Merely Personal as well as Hitler's Uranium Club; Three Degrees Above Zero; and Cranks, Quarks, and the Cosmos. He lives in New York City and Aspen, Colorado.
