Dong-Won Kim, Yoshio Nishina: Father of Modern Physics in Japan
Taylor & Francis | ISBN:0750307552 | 2007 | PDF | 4 MB | 216 Pages

Yoshio Nishina not only made a great contribution to the emergence of a research network that produced two Nobel prize winners, but he also raised the overall level of physics in Japan. Focusing on his roles as researcher, teacher, and statesman of science, Yoshio Nishina: Father of Modern Physics in Japan analyzes Nishina's position in and his contributions to the Japanese physics community. After a concise biographical introduction, the book examines Nishina's family, his early studies, the creation of RIKEN, and the greater Japanese physics community in the early twentieth century. It then focuses on Nishina's work at the Cavendish Laboratory and at the University of Göttingen as well as his more fruitful research at Niels Bohr's Institute of Theoretical Physics in Copenhagen.

Prudence J. Jones, Cleopatra: A Sourcebook
University of Oklahoma Press | ISBN 080613741X | 2006 | PDF | 2 MB | 363 Pages

Cleopatra's life story, gleaned from contemporary sources, is powerfully intriguing: Married four times, she seduced two of the most powerful men in Rome (Julius Caesar and Marc Antony), became the sole ruler of Egypt, gained legendary status for her lavish banquets, and chose to die rather than endure disgrace as the prisoner of Octavian, Caesar's heir.

The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World
PDF | 7 MB | page count: 544 pages | Penguin Press HC, The (September 17, 2021) | English | ISBN: 1594201315

In the immediate aftermath of September 11, 2001, in his fourteenth year as Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Alan Greenspan took part in a very quiet collective effort to ensure that America didn't experience an economic meltdown, taking the rest of the world with it. There was good reason to fear the worst: the stock market crash of October 1987, his first major crisis as Federal Reserve Chairman, coming just weeks after he assumed control, had come much closer than is even today generally known to freezing the financial system and triggering a genuine financial panic. But the most remarkable thing that happened to the economy after 9/11 was...nothing. What in an earlier day would have meant a crippling shock to the system was absorbed astonishingly quickly.

Als die Welt still stand: Galileo Galilei - verraten, verkannt, verehrt

Atle Naess, Als die Welt still stand: Galileo Galilei - verraten, verkannt, verehrt
Springer | ISBN 354021636 | 2005 | PDF | 2 Mb | 245 Pages

Atle Naess arbeitet anschaulich und leicht fassbar heraus, wie es dazu kam, dass Galileo Galilei im Jahr 1632 in die Fänge der Inquisition geriet und zu lebenslangem Hausarrest begnadigt wurde, nachdem er das von ihm untermauerte heliozentrische Weltbild widerrufen hatte. Er macht deutlich, dass der Begründer der empirischen Naturwissenschaft damit überhaupt nichts umstürzend Neues vertrat, sondern lediglich Gedanken konkret untermauerte, die schon 1543 von Nikolaus Kopernikus geäußert worden waren. Mehr als ein halbes Jahrhundert verging, ehe die Gedankenpolizei überhaupt von ihnen Kenntnis nahm. Offenbar lasen die Herren nicht gern, schon gar nicht mathematische oder astronomische Fachliteratur. Das von Kopernikus formulierte Weltbild, richtete sich im Übrigen weniger gegen die Lehren der Bibel als gegen die Naturphilosophie des Aristoteles, die sich das christliche Mittelalter zu Eigen gemacht hatte.
Martin Heidegger: Between Good and Evil

Rüdiger Safranski, Martin Heidegger: Between Good and Evil
Harvard University Press | ISBN 0674387104 | 1999 | PDF | 17 MB | 248 double pages

One of the century's greatest philosophers, without whom there would be no Sartre, no Foucault, no Frankfurt School, Martin Heidegger was also a man of great failures and flaws, a Faustus who made a pact with the devil of his time, Adolf Hitler. The story of Heidegger's life and philosophy, a quintessentially German story in which good and evil, brilliance and blindness are inextricably entwined and the passions and disasters of a whole century come into play, is told in this brilliant biography.
Remarkable Physicists: From Galileo to Yukawa [Repost: The file has been deleted]

Ioan James, Remarkable Physicists: From Galileo to Yukawa
Cambridge University Press | ISBN 0521816874 | 2004 | PDF | 2 MB | 406 pages

This book is ideal for anyone who would like to read about the lives of some of the most remarkable physicists born since the second half of the seventeenth century. Each of the fifty-five physicists profiled have made important contributions to physics, through their ideas and teaching, or in other ways. The biographies are arranged chronologically by the physicists' dates of birth, so that, when read in sequence, they convey how physics developed over time. However, the book emphasizes their varied life stories, not the details of their achievements. Ioan James is Professor at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. He is the author of Remarkable Mathematicians (Cambridge University Press, 2003) and Topological and Uniform Spaces (Springer-Verlag, 1999).

Atle Naess , Galileo Galilei: When the World Stood Still
Springer | ISBN 3540219617 | 2005 | PDF | 2 MB | 220 pages

In the small village of Arcetri, on a wooded hillside just south of Florence, an old man sat writing his will. He had to make a journey to Rome and wanted to be prepared for every eventuality. If the plague did not get him on the road, the strain of travelling might finish him off; in addition he had been ill most of the autumn, with dizziness, stomach pains and a serious hernia. And even if he survived these difficulties, and the cold winter wind from the Apennines did not give him pneumonia, he had no idea what awaited him in Rome, only that his arrival was unlikely to be celebrated with a special mass.

Stanley Mayes, The Great Belzoni: The Circus Strongman Who Discovered Egypt's Ancient Treasures, Second Edition
Tauris Parke Paperbacks | ISBN 1845113330 | 2006 | PDF | 13 MB | 360 pages

The truly extraordinary life story of Giovanni Belzoni – engineer, barber, monk, actor and circus strongman (where he earned his title, ‘The Great Belzoni’), who became one of the giants of 19th century Egyptian archaeology. Sometimes maligned as a tomb robber, Giovanni Battista Belzoni is perhaps the most important and yet least remembered explorer and archaeologist of the last two hundred years. Giovanni Belzoni was the first person to penetrate the heart of the second pyramid at Giza and the first European to visit the oasis of Siwah and discover the ruined city of Berenice on the Red Sea. In 1823, at the age of forty-five, Belzoni died of fever trying to reach the mysterious city of Timbuktu. There has never been a character quite like him in the history of exploration.
