The life of Bertrand Russell by Ronald Clark( Book )

50 editions published between 1975 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All these specialist aspects of one life are different facets of the intellectual diamond which scintillates in the huge quarry of The Bertrand Russell Archives at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario. This is the quintessential man, the bundle of contradictions passionately dedicated to intellect, at times carrying the rational argument to irrational extremes; the natural-born emotional adventurer forever hampered by orphaned youth and too-early marriage. This Russell in the round is greater than the sum of his constituent parts, a man of epic proportions, struggling through a lifetime beset with frustration and near-disaster; in youth the constitutional sceptic, in old age the sometimes splendid figure with "courage never to submit or yield."

The Huxleys by Ronald Clark( Book )

26 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 1,322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nothing is as rare as genius, and yet one family has been producing men of genius for three and even four generations. From Thomas Henry Huxley to the present day, the Huxley family has stood in the front rank of scientific, intellectual and artistic achievement. Here, for the first time and in full detail, is the story of the world's reigning dynasty of the mind. Thomas Henry Huxley, nicknamed "Darwin's Bulldog", did more than popularize the Theory of Evolution. Physician, biologist, fearless educational administrator and pioneer, his energy, unbounded enthusiasms and unquenchable aplomb sum up the entire Victorian era. His brilliance and deep humanistic concerns recur in his grandsons, Aldous and Sir Julian Huxley. Ronald Clark devotes three full chapters to Aldous' development from the witty but cynical spokesman of London's pre-World War II smart set to a man of mystical and transcendental concerns. Clark's access to unpublished correspondence and family documents makes his full-length portrait of this very special man unprecedented in depth and detail. Sir Julian Huxley is the subject of an equally fascinating study. From his early days as head of Rice Institute's brand new Biology Department to the Director-Generalship of UNESCO, Sir Julian's career exemplifies the unofficial Huxley motto: new knowledge for the sake of a new humanity. Ronald Clark also tells the stories of the less widely known but influential descendants of Thomas Henry, among whom number the 1963 Nobel laureate in physiology and two men who helped develop radar. Sixteen pages of photographs add yet another dimension to this history of a unique family which, for over a century, has been setting the very highest possible goals for itself and then surpassing even them."--Jacket

This book is the first full-scale, authorized biography of the attractive but driven leader of the only wartime enterprise as top secret as the manufacture of the first atomic bomb.
