"...an invaluable source of information and of documents that prove that Bohr was not only an inspiring physicist and philosopher but also a cunning negotiator who knew how to make use of his reputation for the benefits of science." Science "Aaserud is therefore to be congratulated for his original, clear--indeed, didactic--work of scholarship and enlightenment, vivified by some 40 photographs, of which the great majority are refreshingly new to the history of physics literature." Paul Forman, Physics Today "Although Redirecting Science may be of more direct interest to scholars of contemporary physics history, it is so agreeably written that it may find a wider audience." Jeremy Bernstein, Nature
