"Blurb & Contents" "Will delight and enlighten." The New York Times Selected as one of Choice magazine's Outstanding Academic Books of 1992. Sheldon L. Glashow shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1979 (with Steven Weinberg and Abdus Salam) for his contributions to the theory of elementary particles, in particular, to the theory that unifies the electromagnetic forces with those responsible for certain weak radioactive decays of nuclei. As the first to suggest the existence of the quark called "charm", Dr. Glashow has played a key role in the inward journey into the strange world of particle physics. In this freewheeling collection of essays, he offers his provocative comments on a wide range of topics in modern physics, from the Particle Zoo to our position in the Universe. Glashow writes with clarity and humor and provides a fascinating report from the frontier.
