Product Overview

In this fascinating biography, Patricia Rife interprets both the life and times of Lise Meitner (1878 1968), providing a rich background of the scientific discoveries and social milieu that affected the research, events, personalities, and politics of 20th century quantum physics. Rife asks the central question of why, given the priority evidence of Meitner''s role in the interpretation of nuclear fission, was she too not awarded the Nobel Prize?
