Force of nature : the life of Linus Pauling by Thomas Hager( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Force of nature is the first full-scale account of Linus Pauling's remarkable life. It also tells the story of Pauling's wife of nearly sixty years, Ava Helen Miller, a woman as intelligent and as strong-willed as he, and an important influence on his politics. Pauling's story also included many luminaries from both science and politics, from G.N. Lewis and Erwin Schrodinger, to Albert Einstein and Albert Schweitzer, to J. Robert Oppenheimer, Edward Teller, and the Hollywood ten. Written with Pauling's cooperation - including hours of interviews and access that Pauling granted Thomas Hager to private papers, correspondence, and diaries - Force of nature also draws on scores of other interviews and thousands of pages of previously unreleased FBI, Department of State, and other documents to tell the compelling story of one of the great and controversial minds of our time
The demon under the microscope : from battlefield hospitals to Nazi labs, one doctor's heroic search for the world's first miracle drug by Thomas Hager( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. It was sulfa, the first synthetic antibiotic. Science writer Hager chronicles the history of the drug that shaped modern medicine. Sulfa saved millions of lives--among them those of Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt Jr.--but even more, it changed the way new drugs were developed, approved, and sold; transformed the way doctors treated patients; and ushered in the era of modern medicine. The very concept that chemicals created in a lab could cure disease revolutionized medicine, taking it from the treatment of symptoms and discomfort to the eradication of the root cause of illness. This book illuminates the vivid characters, corporate strategy, individual idealism, careful planning, lucky breaks, cynicism, heroism, greed, hard work, and the central (though mistaken) idea that brought sulfa to the world.--From publisher description

Taiki o kaeru renkinjutsu : Hābā bosshu to kagaku no seiki by Thomas Hager( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in Japanese and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sweeping history of tragic genius, cutting-edge science, and the discovery that changed billions of lives--including your own. At the dawn of the twentieth century, humanity was facing global disaster. Mass starvation, long predicted for the fast-growing population, was about to become a reality. A call went out to the world's scientists to find a solution. This is the story of the two enormously gifted, fatally flawed men who found it: the brilliant, self-important Fritz Haber and the reclusive, alcoholic Carl Bosch. Together they discovered a way to make bread out of air, built city-sized factories, controlled world markets, and saved millions of lives. Their invention continues to feed us today; without it, more than two billion people would starve. But their epochal triumph came at a price we are still paying. The Haber-Bosch process was also used to make the gunpowder and high explosives that killed millions during the two world wars. Both men were vilified during their lives; both, disillusioned and disgraced, died tragically. Today we face the other un?intended consequences of their discovery--massive nitrogen pollution and a growing pandemic of obesity. The Alchemy of Air is the extraordinary, previously untold story of two master scientists who saved the world only to lose everything and of the unforseen results of a discovery that continues to shape our lives in the most fundamental and dramatic of ways.

"Commonly regarded to be among history's greatest scientific minds, Linus Pauling will also forever be known as a courageous champion of peace and civil liberties.

Incorporating over 500 scanned documents, photographs, audio clips and video excerpts, this web resource features a number of rare and important items, most of which are held within Oregon State University Libraries' Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers."--Home page of web site. "The centerpiece of 'Linus Pauling and the International Peace Movement' is a richly-illustrated, fifty-three chapter narrative, written by Pauling biographer Thomas Hager. Over five-hundred archival documents and more than fifty audio and video clips provide deeper context for the events and ideas discussed in this narrative. In addition, the complete details of the Paulings' personal and professional activities for the years 1950 and 1951 are exhaustively chronicled in the unique Linus Pauling Day-by-Day calendar." -- From the OSU Special Collections press release, Nov. 29, 2007
