[Book review] Driven to Innovate: A Century of Jewish Mathematicians and Physicists
Bradshaw, Noel-Ann (2011) [Book review] Driven to Innovate: A Century of Jewish Mathematicians and Physicists. The London Mathematical Society Newsletter (401). p. 20.Full text not available from this repository.
It is well known that many notable mathematicians and physicists have been of Jewish descent, but in what way did this affect their lives and contribute to their success? In Driven to Innovate, the distinguished mathematician (and former President of the LMS) loan James examines the lives of thirty-five Jewish mathematicians and physicists born in the nineteenth century. Whilst many suffered as a result of anti-Semetic prejudices or circumstances, James also shows how their Jewishness played a part in their achievements.
