Editorial Reviews

"Historians of science should be grateful that a practicing scientist has taken such care to record and evaluate the pivotal issues of his field of work. Hamburger has made it easier for others, who do not have his experience and understanding of the particulars, to enter and to askadditional questions of Spemann and his heritage."--ISIS
