From the Publisher"Whitaker takes us all the way from the 19th century classical world inherited from Newton and Maxwell, through the quantum revolution and all the way to the present day ideas of quantum information.... The topic is, of course, a technically challenging one, but Whitaker opts for a bare minimum of mathematics, concentrating instead on the concepts involved. The result could, very easily, have been either superficial or impenetrable. That it is neither is a remarkable testament to Whitaker’s scholarship, enthusiasm for his subject and to his skill as a writer. His book can be recommended strongly to anyone who is interested in the development of quantum theory or, indeed, to our current understanding of the physical world."
