Lee (U. of Birmingham) presents a collection of correspondence
between Hans Berthe and Rudolf Peierls, two accomplished scientists
who made important contributions to 20th-century physics. Ranging
from 1927 to 1995, the letters began when Berthe and Peierls were
students in Munich and continued throughout their distinguished
careers into retirement. They throw light not only on the lives of
these two remarkable individuals, but also on the historical
circumstances in which they lived and worked, and on the academic
and political environments in which they operated. The materials
are organized chronologically into four phases in Berthe and
Peierls academic development and their working and personal
relationship. Each of the four sections is prefaced by brief
introductory remarks explaining the background to some of the
developments mentioned in the correspondence. Indexed by name only;
