This biography of famed physicist Frédéric Joliot-Curie chronicles his early life, his scientific accomplishments, his public responsibilities, his political beliefs, and his receiving of the Nobel Prize. The book also delves into his personal life—his marriage to Irene Curie, and their life and work together before and during World War II. A good portion of the book encompasses reprints of some of Joliot-Curie’s writings, including his reflections on the human value of science, his paper on a new type of radioactivity, and some letters he sent and received.
