Electronic genie : the tangled history of silicon by Frederick Seitz( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Electronic Genie takes its readers on a two-century journey that begins with Antoine Lavoisiter's prediction of the existence of silicon as an element. It traces the emergence of silicon as key to the development of most forms of today's electronics and its role in making possible the revolutionary digital computer." "Loaded with information about such original thinkers as Lavoisier, John Bardeen, Bill Gates, Patrick Haggerty, Gordon Moore, and many more, the volume traces the use of silicon in metallurgy, as a diode rectifier in wireless and radio, and ultimately as a nonlinear element for heterodyne mixing in radar during World War II." "Electronic Genie will appeal to students of science and technology as well as to anyone interested in the history of these fields."--Jacket
The science matrix : the journey, travails, triumphs by Frederick Seitz( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and German and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seitz Presents a sophisticated, balanced, and practical analysis of the relationship between science and society with a verbal parsimony that some. might well emulate. Both scientists and literate nonscientists will find this book an easy read that is informative, and intellectually stimulating on a subject that all of us should be thinking about." Interdisciplinary Science Reviews"The book is recommended for all considering a career in the natural sciences as well as for their mentors. It should be required reading for policy makers in science, both academic and governmental. Laymen with an interest in science will enjoy and benefit from this concise and readable history of science" American Scientist

Stalin's captive : Nikolaus Riehl and the Soviet race for the bomb by Nikolaus Riehl( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After World War II, German scientist Nikolaus Riehl and his family were held captive in the Soviet Union from 1945 to 1955. His story is uniquely interesting in part because of its historical content, in part because he was bilingual in German and Russian, having grown up in St. Petersburg as the son of a German father and a Russian mother, and as a result of his warm human interest in the Russian people. He tells his story in Ten Years in a Golden Cage. Frederick Seitz has written a detailed introduction that provides a historical context for his translation (from German) of Riehl's book
