From the Publisher"What a wonderful book! From 1600 to the present day, we are led through the history of physics in its many guises. We see the strange and recalcitrant phenomena, the inventive development of instrumentation and experiments, the arcane intricacy of theory, and the pervasive social, cultural and economic influences and consequences of physics. Anyone interested in the history of science will delight in this book. So will any physicist, and any philosopher of science."
— Jeremy Butterfield, Trinity College, University of Cambridge
"[This book] is suitable for specialists and the general public. ... This excellent book points out connections between instruments, observations, theories and discoveries, as well as communication among physicists." —Optics and Photonics News
