Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In this first detailed scientific biography of Heinrich Hertz, Jed Z. Buchwald examines Hertz's work on electromagnetic waves in the context of the social and intellectual world of nineteenth-century German physics. By situating Hertz's work within the larger scientific community of his day, Buchwald demonstrates how the shared, unwritten assumptions, values, and understandings of scientific practice can be recovered.

About the Author

Jed Z. Buchwald is Doris and Henry Dreyfuss Professor of History at California Institute of Technology. He was previously director of the Dibner Institute for the History of Science and Technology at Massachusets Institute of Technology.
