William and Lawrence Bragg, Father and Son This book is a joint biography of William and Lawrence Bragg, who reshaped science in the twentieth century with the development of X-ray crystallography, and by mentoring the mid-century discovery of the structure of DNA. Their stories are vivid examples of science teaching and research in a colonial setting (Australia). Full description

Présentation de l'éditeur :

In 1912 Lawrence Bragg explained the interaction of X-rays with crystals, and he and his father, William thereby pioneered X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. They then led the latter field internationally for fifty years, when most areas of science were transformed by the knowledge they created: physics, chemistry, geology, materials science, electronics, and most recently biology and medical science. This book charts how this humble pair (William English, his son Australian) rose from obscurity to international prominence and then back to current, undeserved obscurity. Attention is also given to the crucial roles of both father and son during the dreadful years of the First World War, and to William's early and unshakeable belief in the dual wave and particle natures of radiation and his eventual vindication. Unlike earlier studies, the book highlights the intimate interactions between father and son that made their project possible, emphasizes personal, family, and wider human relationships, and offers new insights into teaching and research in a British colonial setting.

Revue de presse :

It superbly rewards one's attention. [A] valuable and thoughtful book. (Physics Today)

Jenkin's masterly exposition [...] an admirable book. (Physics World)

The level of detail especially about their personal lives shows the considerable time and effort the author took in putting together this interesting and well-written book. The book would certainly appeal to any reader interested in the history or science or the research work of William and Lawrence Bragg. The personal accounts set the book apart and give the reader a feel for who William and Lawrence were and the journeys they underwent. (Scope)

Jenkin's exploration of Australian archives and family papers illuminates a fresh and fascinating appraisal of the braggs'science in a social context. (Chemistry World)

I warmly recommend Jenkinâs book to everyone interested in the emergence of science in its ambient social fabric. It is a captivating record of the intense collaboration of two great personalities... (Dieter Schwarzenbach, Crystallography Reviews d)
