"A majestic study of a most important spoch of intellectual
history."--Brian Pippard, Times Literary Supplement
"The authors' use of archival sources hitherto almost
untouched gives their story a startling vividness. These volumes
are among the finest works produced by historians of physics."--Jed
Z. Buchwald, Isis
"The authors painstakingly reconstruct the minutiae of
laboratory budgets, instrument collections, and student numbers;
they disentangle the intrigues of faculty appointments and the
professional values those appointments reflected; they explore
collegial relationships among physicists; and they document the
unending campaign of scientists to wring further support for
physics from often reluctant ministries."--R. Steven Turner,
"Superbly written and exhaustively researched."--Peter Harman,
