This autobiography details the interaction of an eminent scientist, Glenn Seaborg, with the highest levels of government in the U.S. during an important period for both science and public policy. Seaborg worked for each administration from 1946 to 1996. The work is based on meticulous notes that he recorded each day. Much of the material in the chapters consists of unedited excerpts from his personal diary, which are interesting, but often too detailed for general readers. Sections at the end of each chapter contain personal reflections that provide many fascinating insights into the personalities of the nation’s leaders. The book also contains numerous photos of Seaborg taken with presidents and other dignitaries.
