"In the middle of the nineteenth century three diverse men discovered and named the Ice Ages.

Einstein defiant : genius versus genius in the quantum revolution by Edmund Blair Bolles( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quantum mechanics was perhaps the single greatest scientific discovery of 20th century physics. But the man who was arguably the greatest physicist of them all - Albert Einstein - struggled with the theory, seeking a more complete explanation of the physical phenomena that scientists were observing. Einstein's reluctance to embrace the quantum ultimately pitted him against another great genius of the era, Niels Bohr, a pragmatist who readily accepted a theory that allowed for unpredictability. Einstein stubbornly insisted on a deeper understanding. This contest of visions ripped through the scientific community, giving rise to one of the most impassioned debates of modern physics." "As the debate crisscrossed Europe, it generated heated discussions and worldwide controversy. With Nobel Prizes awarded to both Einstein and Bohr on the same day, this war of words and ideas continued to play out in lecture halls from Sweden to Japan and beyond. Einstein Defiant is the first book to capture the soul and the science that inspired this dramatic duel, revealing the personalities and the passions - and, in the end, what was at stake for our fundamental understanding of how the world works."--Jacket

Babel's dawn : a natural history of the origins of speech by Edmund Blair Bolles( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Babel's Dawn is a saga covering six million years. Like a walk through a natural history museum, Edmund Blair Bolles demonstrates how members of the human lineage came to speak. Beginning with a diorama of the last common ancestor ignoring a bird as it flies by, he guides us through generations, illuminating how it became possible for two Homo sapiens not only to acknowledge the songbird, but also to discuss the meaning of its song. Tracing the rise of voluntary vocalizations as well as the first word, phrases, and sentences, Bolles works against the common belief that the reason apes cannot speak is they are not smart enough. In this groundbreaking work, Bolles proposes that we now have substantial evidence that this age-old idea can no longer stand. With concrete portrayals of living individuals interwoven with evidence, data, and theory, Babel's Dawn is an account of a great scientific revolution
