Ernest Rutherford (1871–1937) was a physicist, chemist and Nobel Prize winner renowned for his fundamental contributions to the development of nuclear physics. Originally published in 1939, this book contains a detailed biography of Rutherford punctuated with numerous extracts from his papers, letters and other sources. As noted in the preface, the text's aim was 'to hold up a mirror in which Rutherford may reveal himself, just as he was, in lectures, books, papers, speeches, portraits, letters, and casual talk.' Illustrative figures and an appendix section are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Rutherford and his achievements.
