CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Sir Joseph Rotblat (1908-2005), British physicist and one of the most
prominent critics of the nuclear arms race, received the Nobel Peace Prize in
1995 in conjunction with the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs,
an organization of scientists which he headed at the time, for their efforts
towards nuclear disarmament.
'Joseph Rotblat - Visionary for Peace' is dedicated to the life of this unique
scientist and humanist. It contains contributions by Nobel Laureates, eminent
scholars and prominent politicians who, each from their own perspective, shed
light on the life and work of this distinguished scientist.
An introduction by the editors is followed by five central articles on
Rotblat's biography, the impact of his work on science and peace and the
Pugwash organization. The third part of the book consists of over 20
commentaries, written by the likes of Martin Rees, Mikhail Gorbachev, Jack
Steinberger, Mohamed ElBaradei, Paul J.Crutzen, and Mairead Corrigan Maguire.
