30 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in English and held by 2,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The years between 1900 and 1930 brought a drastic change in man's view of the universe. From Max Planck's momentous description of light quanta in 1900 to P.A.M. Dirac's 1929 prediction of anti-particles, it was a period of breath-taking progress in theoretical physics. Here is an eminent theoretical physicist's retrospective view of these crucial developments, together with his recollections, both personal and professional, of Planck, Niels Bohr, Louis de Broglie, Erwin Schrödinger, W. Heisenberg, Dirac, and other scientific giants--the author's friends, teachers and colleagues." --Back cover
