Collected works by Niels Bohr ( Book )
10 editions published between 1985 and 1996 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The influence of Niels Bohr's work, of his approach to research, both practical and theoretical, is widely felt today. His contributions to our knowledge of the atomic constituents of matter and to our view of science, remain of fundamental importance. The publication of his collected works will give historians of science and scientists easy access to a life-work entirely devoted to the rational analysis of the laws of nature and of the singular character of their meaning for us. In addition to Bohr's published papers, the series includes unpublished manuscripts and a wide selection of letters and other documents, with explanatory notes

Controversy and consensus : nuclear beta decay 1911-1934 by Carsten Jensen ( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The book describes in detail the considerable efforts by theoretical and experimental physicists to understand the beta spectra of atomic nuclei. After a brief prehistory, the main narrative spans the period from 1911, when Rutherford and collaborators in Manchester established that the atom had an extremely massive nucleus, until 1934, when the question of beta decay was settled theoretically by Fermi and others. It includes prominently the intense controversy over several years between Lise Meitner from Germany and C. D. Ellis from England about the origin of beta rays."--BOOK JACKET
