About the book
To describe all the most important problems that motivated the physics of the 20th century would require many volumes. What the authors have sought to achieve in this book is to concentrate on the more fundamental issues and to trace their historical development. Whilst no aspect of modern physics is uninteresting, the topics covered here are certain to fascinate any reader, whether trained in physics or not. The achievements and promise of exciting fields — atomic physics, astrophysics, quantum theory, elementary particle physics, quantum electronics, and nonlinear physics — are covered.
No attempt has been made to restrain the authors to a dry presentation of the inception of a particular theme, they have striven to enlighten the logic of the evolution of each concept and foresee what direction the future may take.
The book was translated from Russian by Alexander Repyev and was published in 1987 by Mir.
