Choice Review

This massive compendium of the research papers of America's most celebrated physicist of the last century, Richard Feynman, contains a wide selection from the incredible range of his contributions, but not nearly all of his work. The papers include fields as diverse as quantum chemistry and computer theory, with electrodynamics, liquid helium, and elementary particle theory in between. The biggest section of the book contains Feynman's seminal papers from electrodynamics. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965, along with Julian Schwinger and Sin-itiro Tomonaga, in the field of quantum electrodynamics. A small selection of papers are generally pedagogically interesting and serve to highlight Feynman's enormous interest in transmitting the core concepts of physics to a wider audience. The publication is one in a series of collections put out by this publisher on 20th-century physics. The papers in this volume will appeal primarily to researchers or teachers and students in advanced courses. The book has an excellent chronological bibliography of Feynman's work but sorely misses a serviceable index. Graduate students through professionals. N. Sadanand Central Connecticut State University
