- About this book
This wide-ranging collection of essays presents the best of Panofsky's most accessible writings. It covers his early collaboration with Luis Alvarez and his later work as researcher and director at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Through several essays--some reflecting his lifelong concern with nuclear weapons and arms control--Panofsky also reveals the often intractable differences that exist between the drives of theoretical science and the constraints of public policy.
