Published by Kevin Jacobson
M-Y Books is proud to announce the publication of the autobiography of distinguished Physicist E Walter Kellerman.

This informative book covers the pre war period to the 1990s spanning the author’s experience of the rise of Nazism on the continent, his research and his involvement in the planning of Science and Higher Education in Britain. He gives a wry commentary on education and science in Britain, and describes his role in pressing for adequate funding for science, especially during the Thatcher era.

His research in Edinburgh with the future Nobel Laureate Max Born, one of the giants of Theoretical Physics, led to a breakthrough in solid-state physics. In Manchester he worked with Patrick Blackett, also a future Nobel Laureate, measuring ‘Extensive Air Showers’. These are sprays of particles, which fall on the earth generated by nuclear particles from the cosmos. Later in Leeds he was one of the initiators of the National British Air Shower Experiment. - He writes about some of the famous scientists he has met, and also of his disappointments which are often the fate of a working scientist.

A Physicist’s Labour in War and Peace will appeal to not just scientists, but also to the general book reader owing to its insight and well-written musings. Much more than just an autobiography!
