The chemistry of the actinide elements by Joseph J Katz( Book )

30 editions published between 1957 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of this work appeared almost thirty years ago, when, as we can see in retrospect, the study of the actinide elements was in its first bloom. Although the broad features of the chemistry of the actinide elements were by then quite weil delineated, the treatment of the subject in the first edition was of necessity largely descriptive in nature. A detailed understanding ofthe chemical consequences of the characteristic presence of 5f electrons in most of the members ofthe actinide series was still for the future, and many ofthe systematic features of the actinide elements were only dimly apprehended. In the past thirty years all this has changed. The application of new spectroscopic techniques, which came into general use during this period, and new theoretical insights, which came from a better understanding of chemical bonding, inorganic chemistry, and solid state phenomena, were among the important factors that led to a great expansion and maturation in actinide element research and a large number of new and important findings. The first edition consisted of aserial description of the individual actinide elements, with a single chapter devoted to the six heaviest elements (lawrencium, the heaviest actinide, was yet to be discovered). Less than 15% of the text was devoted to a consideration of the systematics of the actinide elements

The Atomic Energy Commission under Nixon : adjusting to troubled times by Glenn T Seaborg( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this revealing book, Nobel Laureate Glenn T. Seaborg tells what it was like to be chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission during the Nixon presidency. As in his two other highly-praised historical books (Kennedy, Khrushchev, and the Test Ban and Stemming the Tide: Arms Control in the Johnson Years), Dr. Seaborg draws extensively from his meticulously kept diary, enabling the reader to be a fly on the wall during meetings with Nixon, Henry Kissinger, and other key policy makers. During the Nixon period, the debate over how to deal with the Soviets on nuclear issues and arms control remained central. On the domestic scene, efforts to promote and regulate the growth of a nuclear power industry were complicated by a rising tide of environmental protest. Dr. Seaborg described how the Atomic Energy Commission, shorn of much of the political immunity of its early years, sought to maintain its programs and ultimately its very existence, while besieged by competing pressures from the White House, other government agencies, antinuclear activists, industry, state governments, and Congress. The Atomic Energy Commission Under Nixon provides valuable information and insights for those interested in nuclear matters, in the governing style and personality of Richard Nixon, and in how the U.S. government functions and fails to function

You and atomic energy and its wonderful uses by John Bryan Lewellen( Book )

1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Absorbing story of the development of the atomic furnace. The principle of releasing atomic energy is clarified in simple text, and dramatized with enlightening pictures. Gives the reader an awareness of the new era of enriched living which is possible through the wonderful uses of this new source of energy and the tool for research which it provides. Lively picture-glossary of atomic energy terms makes it easy to follow the rapid daily progress that is being made in adapting this new power to the needs of the world."--Jacket

A scientist speaks out : a personal perspective on science, society and change by Glenn T Seaborg( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In A Scientist Speaks Out - A Personal Perspective on Science, Society, and Change, Nobel Laureate (Chemistry, 1951) Glenn T. Seaborg shares some of his thoughts and reflections on his broad interests, from the formulation of national science policy to the promise of youth. During a distinguished career in science and public service that spanned more than 50 years, he published over 500 works and maintained a public speaking schedule that included about 700 speeches on a wide variety of topics. This volume is a collection of nearly forty of his more popular speeches and articles, directed at a mostly non-scientific and non-technical audience. Since this volume is a compendium of reprints, readers will be able to share some of Seaborg's thoughts, as he originally penned them
