The history of the Faraday Society

£8.99

Product description

This is a record of the creation and evolution of one of the most important scientific societies in the UK and charts its major contribution to the promotion of free debate and dissemination of new scientific knowledge in this key subject area, which is at the interface between the sciences.

The Faraday Society was founded around the close of the 19th century and it is fitting that this history should be published around the close of the 20th century, the same year in which the 100th Faraday Discussion is being celebrated. It is a time for looking back, as well as to the future. This book forms a unique record of the creation and evolution of one of the most important scientific societies in the UK and charts its major contribution to the promotion of free debate and dissemination of new scientific knowledge in this key subject area, which is at the interface between chemistry, physics and biology. The two authors write from the informed perspective of scientists who were important participants in the evolution of physical chemistry, who were personally involved with Faraday matters, and who had great insight into the factors which affected the policies, decisions, and affairs of the society, and the personalities

Excellent pages, a little edge and D/J wear.
