Including contributions from over fifty of his closest friends and colleagues, this book is a loving and informative tribute to Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov, physicist, human rights activist, and winner of the 1975 Nobel Peace Prize. In addition to dedicating much of his life to promoting peace and encouraging nuclear disarmament, Sakharov is known for his work developing the first Soviet thermonuclear weapon, and research on fusion power, nuclear, and particle physics, and cosmology. The book contains photographs of Sakharov, documents pertaining to and describing his seven-year exile to Gorky, and the text of his last speech at the Lebedev Institute of Physics in Moscow, where he was a senior research fellow.
