    characters ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Philip Ball Philip Ball ↠ 3 review characters Serving the Reich A nuanced essay on a subject of great relevance Ball is less sparkling a historian of science than he is a science popularizer But he's certainly a thoughtful one and the book in review is important I didn't learn much reading it that I wasn't aware of already but I was encouraged to a subtler and critical reading of the facts than I'd previously done For that kudos to the author

characters Serving the Reich

review Serving the Reich 103 characters ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Philip Ball characters Serving the Reich Serving the Reich tells the story of physics under Hitler While some scientists tried to create an Aryan physics that excluded any ‘Jewish ideas’ many others made compromises and concessions as they continued to work under the Nazi regime Among them were three world renowned physicistsMax Planck pioneer of uantum theory regarded it as his moral duty to carry on under the regimePeter Debye a. The book is uite interesting and its aim is to write a definitive account on the situation of three major figures in both uantum Physics and Germany Both Plack and Heisenberg are studied extensively in other books and magazines but it s the first time I ve read an account on Debye as well probably because he s one of the most controversial physicists who have worked under the regime Overall the book is well written and addresses both uestions about physics and history trying to cast a light on the most important aspects of uantum mechanics The fact that it deals only with those aspects that are necessary to the dissertation is a plus for me as the other phenomena despite their obvious physical importance are of no use for a discussion about politics The only problem I could find in the book is that the approach is uite repetitive thus it ends up being a bit boring after a while especially if you know already a big chunk of what the author is talking about

review Serving the Reich 103 characters ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Philip Ball characters Serving the Reich Dutch physicist rose to run the Reich’s most important research institute before leaving for the United States in 1940Werner Heisenberg discovered the Uncertainty Principle and became the leading figure in Germany’s race for the atomic bombAfter the war most scientists in Germany maintained they had been apolitical or even resisted the regime Debye claimed that he had gone to America to es. Never really got into to this i found the decision to jump back and forth in time in Chapters a bit of an irritation when maybe a straight linear telling of the events would have been a better choice Also the constant uarreling and back and forth letter writing between scientist s lecturer s University chiefs became very tiresome and felt a bit trite and meaningless given the circumstances of the time I understand at the time the letters were written they weren t fully aware of the horrors to come I think i was expecting a different book and so gave up after Chapter 7
