Quantum profiles by Jeremy Bernstein ( Book )
15 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For the prominent science writer Jeremy Bernstein, the profile is the most congenial way of communicating science. Here, in what he labels a "series of conversations carried on in the reader's behalf and my own," he evokes the tremendous intellectual excitement of the world of modern physics, especially the quantum revolution. Drawing on his well-known talent for explaining the most complex scientific ideas for the layperson, Bernstein gives us a lively sense of what the issues of quantum mechanics are and of various ways in which individual physicists approached them. The author begins this se

Secrets of the old one Einstein, 1905 by Jeremy Bernstein ( )
24 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Secrets of the Old One, Jeremy Bernstein sets out to make Albert Einstein's revolutionary contributions to modern physics comprehensible to general readers. Relying on nothing more advanced than high-school mathematics, he not only explains the science but evokes the scientific scene in which the young Einstein wrote his four revolutionary papers of 1905. Working very nearly alone and with apparently complete self-confidence, in spite of the skepticism or indifference of the physics establishment, the twenty-six-year-old Einstein managed to reveal hidden workings of "The Old One" - the name he sometimes used to refer to the deity. In the course of this one amazingly fruitful year, Bernstein shows us, he had set out the principles that would eventually turn the world of nineteenth-century physics on its head, and establish the course of physics for the twentieth century and beyond."--BOOK JACKET
Nuclear weapons : what you need to know by Jeremy Bernstein ( Book )

Dr. Bernstein writes in response to what he sees as a widespread misunderstanding throughout the media of the basic workings and potential impact of nuclear weaponry

15 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book contains new insights into one of the unanswered questions of recent world history. Why, with their head start in not only research in nuclear fission but in other technological feats, didn't the Germans succeed in building a nuclear bomb during World War II? Now ..., this book brings to the public ... annotated transcripts of ... declassified intelligence reports from that time. These reports contain verbatim conversations among ten German atomic scientists before, during, and after the atomic bombing of Japan in August 1945... These secret reports from Farm Hall ... offer the world a unique insight into the mindset of the scientists on the other side ... and as they struggled to come to terms with their wartime work and to prepared for the postwar nuclear era in Germany"--Introd

A theory for everything by Jeremy Bernstein ( Book )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of America's best-known essayists on science, physicist Jeremy Bernstein, here presents his latest collection of work. Drawn from over ten years of writing for magazines such as The Atlantic, The New York Review of Books, The New Yorker, and Scientific American, these essays provide illuminating accounts of the lives of some of this century's most important scientists and the value of their work." "Bernstein's fans who remember these pieces from their original publication will be pleased to see that many that had to be cut - sometimes drastically - to fit magazine space requirements are here restored to their original length. Bernstein has added introductions and postscripts to many essays as well. In all, this collection contains a great deal of new and unpublished material." "An added bonus is Bernstein's four pieces of published fiction - three of which are hilarious send-ups of academic and sexual politics at a small and (we hope) imaginary college."--BOOK JACKET
