I wish I'd made you angry earlier : essays on science, scientists, and humanity by Max F Perutz ( Book )
21 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Science is no quiet life. Imagination, creativity, ambition, and conflict are as vital and abundant in science as in artistic endeavors. In this collection of essays, the Nobel Prize-winning protein chemist Max Perutz writes about the pursuit of scientific knowledge, which he sees as an enterprise providing not just new facts but cause for reflection and revelation, as in a poem or painting." "Perutz seeks to convince us that science is a passionate enterprise and the pursuit of knowledge a sortie into the unknown. There is no more persuasive advocate. These pages are filled with portraits of twentieth-century giants, Pauling, Meitner, Bragg, Haber, Medawar, Szilard, Jacob, Krebs, and others. There are entertaining glimpses of Perutz's own long and exceptional life: his flight from Vienna in the 30's and internment in Britain as an enemy alien in World War II, rescue from the sea after a U-boat attack, involvement in a scheme to make ships of ice for refuelling aircraft in the North Atlantic, and after the war his intense, ten-year struggle to perfect a new way of understanding protein structure and function. Perutz is an eloquent spokesman for humanitarian causes, and his observations on abortion issues, nuclear fuel reprocessing, and human rights reflect a lifelong concern for both social justice and scientific integrity."--BOOK JACKET

Resources and population : natural, institutional, and demographic dimsensions of development by Study Week on "Resources and Population" ( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book originated in a study week organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences to bring the best available scientific evidence to bear on this complex and still inadequately explored topic. The study week brought together experts in demography and from the physical, biological, political, economic, anthropological, religious, cultural, and health sciences, to investigate past experience and observed trends. Through this multidisciplinary analysis, a reference base was assembled that is factual, amply documented, and as scientifically sound as possible

12 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Science is not a quiet life : unravelling the atomic mechanism of haemoglobin by Max F Perutz ( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Linus Pauling called haemoglobin the most interesting and important of molecules. This important volume shows how X-ray crystallography was used to determine its bewilderingly complex atomic structure and to unravel the stereochemical mechanisms of its respiratory functions. It introduces isomorphous replacement with heavy atoms which led to the first protein structures, haemoglobin and its simpler relative myoglobin. Later papers deal with the stereochemistry of the cooperative effects of haemoglobin, with the relationships between the structures and impaired functions of abnormal haemoglobin
