PUBLISHERThe University of Chicago Press
CITYChicago, IL

This nontraditional biography looks at Madam Marie Curie's life and career as it correlates with the rise of modern science, celebrity culture, and the dawning age of information and intellectual property. The thoroughly researched contents provide fresh perspectives on the events that shaped the career of the first woman to win the Nobel Prize, shedding light in particular on her part in the management of her image and scientific contributions. The author illustrates Marie Curie's own role in creating her scientific image and also examines how biographers, historians, and philanthropists have contributed to the contemporary understanding of her scientific and historical significance.
