Synopsis

Nuclear physics between 1921 and 1947 shaped more than any

other science thepolitical landscape of our century and the

public opinion on physical research. Using quantitative

scientometric methods, a new branch in the history of

science, the author focuses on the developments of nuclear

physics in these formative years paying special attention to

theimpact of German emigrants on the evolution of the field

as a cognitive and social unity. The book is based on a

thorough analysis of various citation analyses thus

producing results that should be more replicable and more

objective. The scientometric techniques should complement

the more qualitative approach usually applied in historical

writing. This makes the text an interesting study also for

the historian in general.
