PUBLISHERAmerican Institute of Physics
CITYNew York, NY

This book of essays is a collection of personal reminiscences and scientific perspectives concerning Andrei Sakharov, a Soviet physicist who helped create the hydrogen bomb and won the Nobel Peace Prize. In addition to documenting his place in the scientific community, the book also recalls his lesser-known reputation as an unbending dissident who was recalled from internal exile to become a key player in advancing the concept of perestroika. The essays concentrate on his life, character, and efforts on behalf of human rights, and his contributions to fundamental and applied science. The essays are not meant to be strictly biographical; rather, they are personal, often opinionated and conflicting recollections of this accomplished man.
