  • Tunnel Visionsby Michael Riordan; Lillian Hoddeson; Adrienne W. Kolb

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 32.00

    Starting in the 1950s, US physicists dominated the search for elementary particles; aided by the association of this research with national security, they held this position for decades. In an effort to maintain their hegemony and track down the elusive Higgs boson, they convinced President Reagan and Congress to support construction of the multibillion-dollar... more...

  • Masters of Uncertaintyby Phaedra Daipha

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 30.00

    Though we commonly make them the butt of our jokes, weather forecasters are in fact exceptionally good at managing uncertainty. They consistently do a better job calibrating their performance than stockbrokers, physicians, or other decision-making experts precisely because they receive feedback on their decisions in near real time. Following forecasters... more...

  • Communicating Physicsby Josep Simon

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    The textbooks written by Adolphe Ganot played a major role in shaping the way physics was taught in schools. Simon's Franco-British case study looks at the role of two of Ganot's books. The study is novel for its international comparison of 19th-century physics and for its emphasis on the communication of science rather than on the science itself. more...

  • Einstein and the Quantumby A. Douglas Stone

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 19.95

    Einstein and the Quantum reveals for the first time the full significance of Albert Einstein's contributions to quantum theory. Einstein famously rejected quantum mechanics, observing that God does not play dice.

  • Come Rain or Shineby Storm Dunlop

    Summersdale 2015; US$ 8.99

    In Faversham, Kent, in 2003, the highest ever temperature in the UK was recorded: a blistering 38.5 C (101.3 F). The word "blirty" in Scotland describes "gusts of wind and rain." The weather is a subject that the British simply cannot leave alone, and for good reason?it?s likely that for more than half the year they will experience at least three... more...

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 24.95

    "Some people say, ?How can you live without knowing?' I do not know what they mean. I always live without knowing. That is easy. How you get to know is what I want to know."?Richard P. Feynman Nobel Prize?winning physicist Richard P. Feynman (1918?88) was that rarest of creatures?a towering scientific genius who could make himself understood by anyone... more...

  • The Global Governance of Climate Changeby Ms Ella Kokotsis; Professor John J. Kirton; Professor John J. Kirton; Professor Miranda A Schreurs; Mr Konrad Von Moltke

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 129.95

Kirton and Ella Kokotsis analyse the generation and effectiveness of four decades of intergovernmental regimes for controlling global climate... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    The loss of biodiversity is a major environmental problem in nearly every terrestrial ecosystem on Earth. This loss is accelerating driven by climate change, as well as by other causes including agricultural exploitation, fragmentation and degradation triggered by land use changes. The crucial issue under debate is the impact on the welfare of current... more...
