Essays of a Soviet Scientist Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Vitalii Goldanskii has captured the restless, vital and often violent spirit of much of the last century in science and politics, particularly in the former Soviet Union. These essays offer a fascinating look into the workings of one of today's most versatile and socially responsible scientists". — Glenn T. Seaborg, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Born to Jewish parents in the small village of Vitebsk, Russia, Vitalii Goldanskii lived and worked through the earth-shaking events that have shaped modern Russia, from the Communist revolution to Gorbachev's fledgling Russian democracy. The articles, essays, and interviews that make up Essays of a Soviet Scientist offer Goldanskii's reminiscences of his extraordinary scientific mentors and colleagues, his reflections on the obligations of science to humanity, his writings on the arts and the media, his passionate arguments against nuclear weapons, and his warnings about the resurgence of anti-Semitism in today's Russia.
