A short history of physics in the American century by David C Cassidy ( )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the twentieth century drew to a close, computers, the Internet, and nanotechnology were central to modern American life. Yet the advances in physics underlying these applications are poorly understood and widely underappreciated by U.S. citizens today. In this concise overview, David C. Cassidy sharpens our perspective on modern physics by viewing this foundational science through the lens of America's engagement with the political events of a tumultuous century. --from publisher description
Understanding physics student guide by David C Cassidy ( )
33 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Understanding Physics is an innovative undergraduate course designed for students preparing to enter careers in fields outside of science or engineering, including students planning to teach, or already teaching, in K-12 classrooms. It is inspired by the famous Project Physics Course, which became known for placing the concepts of physics within the broader humanistic contexts in which they arose. The course materials comprise * The textbook, which is divided into two parts that may be studied in either order * This Student Guide, containing inquiry-based laboratory investigations and additional materials * An Instructor Guide with examination questions, resources, and other helpful information These components work together to provide an integrated educational experience in physics. The text contains questions designed to help students confirm what they have learned and to encourage them to explore further, by reading, by experimenting, and in group discussions. The inquiry-based laboratory investigations include in-depth explorations, student-designed inquiries, and text-related mini- laboratory explorations that may be used as hands-on activities or as demonstrations with student participation. The suggested equipment is deliberately "low tech" in order to afford students maximum experience with the phenomena. The apparatus is inexpensive and common to most instructional laboratories. Some ways to incorporate computer usage are suggested as students gain familiarity with the laboratory apparatus and methods

J. Robert Oppenheimer and the American century by David C Cassidy ( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The unexplored secret of the American Century, the last 100 years of US history, is the rise of American science, specifically physics. At the heart of that story is J. Robert Oppenheimer, leader of the Manhattan Project that built the atomic bomb. He was a man of contradictions: a scientist who discovered blackholes and then turned his back on cutting edge research; a gentle liberal humanist responsible for the creation of the first real weapon of mass destruction; a genius who founded "scientific militarism" and then let it destroy him. His life story embodies the great conflicts of American society, its genius, its weaknesses, and even its essential morality. How did an aesthete man uninterested in the acquisition of power become the leader of American science, the most powerful research community in the world? And how did he, with all his intellectual and social advantages, lose his power and become regarded by many as an unfulfilled if not failed scientist. While it is biography of a physicist, it is also a history of the 20th century offering insights into the "scientific militarism" behind events on the world stage today
Relativity: the special and the general theory; a popular exposition by Albert Einstein ( Book )
7 editions published between 1961 and 2006 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Robert Geroch builds on Einstein's work with commentary that addresses the ideas at the heart of the theory, bringing a modern understanding of relativity to the text. He elucidates how special relativity is a reconciliation of the contradictions between the nature of light and the principle of relativity; he expands on Einstein's treatment of the geometry of space-time and the fundamental notion of an "event"; he explains in detail, but without technical language, the equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass, a cornerstone of general relativity

Hitler's uranium club : the secret recordings at Farm Hall by Jeremy Bernstein ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book contains new insights into one of the unanswered questions of recent world history. Why, with their head start in not only research in nuclear fission but in other technological feats, didn't the Germans succeed in building a nuclear bomb during World War II? Now ..., this book brings to the public ... annotated transcripts of ... declassified intelligence reports from that time. These reports contain verbatim conversations among ten German atomic scientists before, during, and after the atomic bombing of Japan in August 1945... These secret reports from Farm Hall ... offer the world a unique insight into the mindset of the scientists on the other side ... and as they struggled to come to terms with their wartime work and to prepared for the postwar nuclear era in Germany"--Introd
