Wade Allison (Physics, 1963)
A major impact of physics on civilisation has been that it enables us to see inside things – from everyday objects, to the Earth, to our own bodies. Which aspects of physics are primarily responsible for this revolution? How do they work and how are they used to provide the information and images? Are the dangers that surround applications of this physics understood? Or are the public misinformed? This book is written to answer these questions. Its coverage is broad but it is also quite demanding in places, for it avoids the easy way of asking the reader to take statements on trust. For more information click here.
