CITYNew York, NY

This comprehensive biography presents the life of Isidor Isaac Rabi, acknowledged dean of American physics and key contributor to nuclear science both during and after World War II. The author discusses Rabi’s life from childhood to the perfection of quantum theory to the war years to contemporary times, and includes an epilogue by Rabi. Rabi's work as an advisor at Los Alamos and his relationship with Oppenheimer are explored extensively, as are his attempts to reconcile physics and religion. The book also contains “The Rabi Tree”, a graphic indication of Rabi’s pervasive influence on physics in general and on American physics in particular.
