Back cover and last few pages have a small crease top corner, covers have some edge wear."A lucid account of quantum theory (and why you should care) combined with a gripping narrative."―San Francisco ChronicleQuantum theory is weird. As Niels Bohr said, if you weren't shocked by quantum theory, you didn't really understand it. For most people, quantum theory is synonymous with mysterious, impenetrable science. And in fact for many years it was equally baffling for scientists themselves. In this tour de force of science history, Manjit Kumar gives a dramatic and superbly written account of this fundamental scientific revolution, focusing on the central conflict between Einstein and Bohr over the nature of reality and the soul of science. This revelatory book takes a close look at the golden age of physics, the brilliant young minds at its core―and how an idea ignited the greatest intellectual debate of the twentieth century. 16 pages of photographsSoftcover 448 p.

Moderate wear.The highpoints in archaeology! This wonderfully engaging volume tells the story of some well-known archaeologists and some remarkable excavations. In the process, it throws light on some of the ways in which the founders of archaeology unearthed early civilizations, probed the origins of humankind, and explored the history of non-Western societies. Quest for the Past ranges widely over the world of archaeology, detailing great discoveries as diverse as the excavation of 2-million-year-old Hominids, long-forgotten Native American settlements, and spectacular ancient civilizations, describing the sites and discoveries in the context of their finders' times. Each essay serves as an independent description of some of the challenges faced and discoveries made both by adventurous pioneers like Austen Henry Layard and trained scientists like Rene Millon and Gertrude Caton-Thompson. The volume includes important chapters on how archaeology works and on early female archaeologists.281 p.

Moderate wear. From Booklist Does the pharmaceutically sophisticated lady of the house in which short, dark, ugly Sarveali is factotum really know her quinces? She claims a potion made from quince seeds is a cure-all for ailments physical and metaphysical, and wishing to remedy his unnatural, self-disgusting same-sex urges, her miserable servant clings to the hope that it is. Arranged marriage to his scheming, grasping cousin's daughter has not cured him, for she refuses him while welcoming others behind his back. Furious, the shy little man explodes in drunken violence. He is imprisoned and in jail becomes addicted to opium. Baharloo's engrossing, elegantly told story of a sweetly pathetic, supremely loyal family retainer unfolds in the first person against the backdrop of Iran's history from 1928 to 1981. As the once encompassing power of dynastic families unravels, giving way to the Islamic revolution of 1979, readers view the changes overtaking the household in which barely literate, politic ...
