This book contains 22 essays on the life, work, and personality of physicist Niels Bohr written by many of his closest colleagues, friends, and family members. The essays examine his work on the atomic nucleus and the interpretation of the quantum theory, his ideas on complementarity, his involvement with nuclear weapons and energy, and his family and personal life. Among the essayists represented are Bohr’s son and grandson, Hans and Aage Bohr, and physicists Werner Heisenberg, Paul Dirac, Otto Frisch, and Viktor Weisskopf. Also included are a 1950 letter that Niels Bohr wrote to the United Nations advocating universal free access to information about nuclear technologies, a brief chronology of his life, and numerous photographs.
