Robert Oppenheimer: Letters and Recollections (Stanford Nuclear Age)

Robert Oppenheimer: Letters and Recollections (Stanford Nuclear Age) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967) is one of the few American scientists who have become public - and controversial - figures in the twentieth century. This book adds a new dimension to the Oppenheimer story by offering a look at the private man behind the public figure. It consists of letters spanning the period from his Harvard student days in 1922 to his departure from Los Alamos in 1945. The letters are supplemented by recollections of those who knew Oppenheimer and by his own recollections from an interview a few years before his death.

Synopsis:

This book adds a new dimension to the Oppenheimer story by offering a look at the private man behind the public figure.
