Theodore Taylor was one of the most brilliant engineers of the nuclear age, but in his later years he became concerned with the possibility of an individual being able to construct a weapon of mass destruction on their own. McPhee tours American nuclear institutions with Taylor and shows us how close we are to terrorist attacks employing homemade nuclear weaponry.

Nuclear binding energy is the energy that would be required to disassemble the nucleus of an atom into its component parts. These component parts are neutrons and protons, which are collectively called nucleons. The binding energy of nuclei is due to the attractive forces that hold these nucleons together and this is usually a positive number, since most nuclei would require the expenditure of energy to separate them into individual protons and neutrons. The mass of an atomic nucleus is usually less than the sum of the individual masses of the constituent protons and neutrons (according to Einstein's equation E=mc2) and this 'missing mass' is known as the mass defect, and represents the energy that was released when the nucleus was formed. The term nuclear binding energy may also refer to the energy balance in processes in which the nucleus splits into fragments composed of more than one nucleon. If new binding energy is available when light nuclei fuse, or when heavy nuclei split, either process can result in release of this binding energy. This energy may be made available as nuclear energy and can be used to produce electricity as in (nuclear power) or in a nuclear weapon. When a large nucleus splits into pieces, excess energy is emitted as photons (gamma rays) and as the kinetic energy of a number of different ejected particles (nuclear fission products). The nuclear binding energies and forces are on the order of a million times greater than the electron binding energies of light atoms like hydrogen. The mass defect of a nucleus represents the mass of the energy of binding of the nucleus, and is the difference between the massof a nucleus and the sum of the masses of the nucleons of which it is composed.

A thorough grounding in contemporary physics while placing the subject into its social and historical context. Based largely on the highly respected Project Physics Course developed by two of the authors, it also integrates the results of recent pedagogical research. The text thus teaches the basic phenomena in the physical world and the concepts developed to explain them; shows that science is a rational human endeavour with a long and continuing tradition, involving many different cultures and people; develops facility in critical thinking, reasoned argumentation, evaluation of evidence, mathematical modelling, and ethical values. The treatment emphasises not only what we know but also how we know it, why we believe it, and what effects this knowledge has.

April 1986, ein kalter Frühlingsmorgen in Weißrussland. Der dreizehnjährige Artjom darf zum ersten Mal mit den Männern des Dorfes auf die Jagd gehen. Im Lichte eines spektakulären Sonnenaufgangs durchstreifen sie die Felder, die Luft erfüllt von einer eigentümlichen Atmosphäre, und plötzlich macht Artjom eine verstörende Entdeckung: Das Vieh auf den Weiden blutet aus den Ohren, und kurz darauf fallen die Vögel tot vom Himmel. Im benachbarten Tschernobyl ist das Undenkbare passiert. Die Katastrophe von Tschernobyl teilt das Leben in ein Davor und ein Danach ein: Der Bauernsohn aus Weißrussland, der Moskauer Chirurg vor den Trümmern seiner Ehe, seine Exfrau, die Dissidentin, und ihr Neffe, das Klavierwunderkind, sie alle werden durch den Super-GAU unwiderruflich verändert, und ihre Lebenslinien werden zusammengeführt. Darragh McKeon zeichnet das Psychogramm einer hochtechnisierten Gesellschaft im Angesicht einer selbstverursachten Katastrophe. In eindringlichen Bildern und mit großem Einfühlungsvermögen für seine Figuren zeigt der Autor, wie eine solche Ausnahmesituation Menschen zu Fall bringen und Staatsapparate zerstören kann.

Endlich liegt die anschauliche und fundierte Einführung zur Modernen Physik von Paul A. Tipler und Ralph A. Llewellyn in der deutschen Übersetzung vor. Eine umfassende Einführung in die Relativitätstheorie, die Quantenmechanik und die statistische Physik wird im ersten Teil des Buches gegeben. Die wichtigsten Arbeitsgebiete der modernen Physik - Festkörperphysik, Kern- und Teilchenphysik sowie die Kosmologie und Astrophysik - werden in der zweiten Hälfte des Buches behandelt. Zu weiteren zahlreichen Spezialgebieten gibt es Ergänzungen im Internet beim Verlag der amerikanischen Originalausgabe, die eine Vertiefung des Stoffes ermöglichen. Mit ca. 700 Übungsaufgaben eignet sich das Buch hervorragend zum Selbststudium sowie zur Begleitung einer entsprechenden Vorlesung. Die Übersetzung des Werkes übernahm Dr. Anna Schleitzer. Die Bearbeitung und Anpassung an Anforderungen deutscher Hochschulen wurde von Prof. Dr. G. Czycholl, Prof. Dr. W. Dreybrodt, Prof. Dr. C. Noack und Prof. Dr. U. Strohbusch durchgeführt. Dieses Team gewährleistet auch für die deutsche Fassung die wissenschaftliche Exaktheit und Stringenz des Originals.

The John McPhee Reader, first published in 1976, is comprised of selections from the author's first twelve books. In 1965, John McPhee published his first book, A Sense of Where You Are; a decade later, he had published eleven others. His fertility, his precision and grace as a stylist, his wit and uncanny brilliance in choosing subject matter, his crack storytelling skills have made him into one of our best writers: a journalist whom L.E. Sissman ranked with Liebling and Mencken, who Geoffrey Wolff said "is bringing his work to levels that have no measurable limit," who has been called "a master craftsman" so many times that it is pointless to number them.
