9780883185247: Atoms in the Family: My Life with Enrico Fermi: 009 (History of Modern Physics and Astronomy)

In this absorbing account of life with the great atomic scientist Enrico Fermi, Laura Fermi tells the story of their emigration to the United States in the 1930s—part of the widespread movement of scientists from Europe to the New World that was so important to the development of the first atomic bomb. Combining intellectual biography and social history, Laura Fermi traces her husband's career from his childhood, when he taught himself physics, through his rise in the Italian university system concurrent with the rise of fascism, to his receipt of the Nobel Prize, which offered a perfect opportunity to flee the country without arousing official suspicion, and his odyssey to the United States.

Review:

"If Laura Fermi is short on domestic candor, she makes up for it in excellent science-chronicling. Her accounts of Fermi's critical experiments in Italy will delight the lay reader without horrifying the pure scientist."--Ralph E. Lapp "New York Times "
