This book comprises all of John Bell's published and unpublished papers in the field of quantum mechanics, including two papers that appeared after the first edition was published. It also contains a preface written for the first edition, and an introduction by Alain Aspect that puts into context Bell's great contribution to the quantum philosophy debate. One of the leading expositors and interpreters of modern quantum theory, John Bell played a major role in the development of our current understanding of the profound nature of quantum concepts. First edition Hb (1987): 0-521-33495-0 First edition Pb (1988): 0-521-36869-3

Distinguished physicist well known for his work on the conceptual foundations of quantum mechanics, who died in 1990.


From reviews of the first edition: '... a timely and immensely valuable book ... much of [it] is so good that it surely could not be bettered.' New Scientist '... an exemplary introduction to the continuing debates about quantum mechanics.' Nature 'Das Buch ist ein 'Muss' fur jeden, der sich fur Grundlagen dew Quantentheorieinteressiert.' Physikalische Blanter 'This book is lovely and thoughtful, and it should be read by everyone interested in fundamental questions of nature.' American Journal of Physics '... the new edition of Bell's papers is a must-buy for anyone seriously interested in the fundamentals of quantum mechanics and in understanding Bell's contribution to our grasp of the subject.'
