Editorial Reviews


This selection of highly detailed essays from academic physicists, mathematicians and historians of science seeks to do justice to Maxwell from many perspectives, looking at his life, his science, his mathematical abilities, his poetry and his religious faith. Christine Evans-Pughe, Engineering&Technology, The same editorial team produced a wonderful book on another great Scottish Victorian mathematician, Lord Kelvin, and this new collection of essaus looks equally enticing. Tony Mann, Times Higher Education
