Time Reversal is the autobiography of a leading figure in modern physics, Anatole Abragam. Born in Russia in 1915, he emigrated to Paris at the age of ten, where he proved to be a highly gifted pupil. But it was not until 1945, when he gained a place in a laboratory in Saclay, that hiscareer in physics really began. His contributions to the field of nuclear magnetism subsequently won him high distinctions. This book is a candid description of the author's life, times, and colleagues. It is replete with anecdotes and pen-portraits of his contemporaries, not all of which are flattering.
Anatole Abragam is at College de France.

From Our Editors

This book is the story of a physicist who will never see three score years and ten again, and who, during his long and chequered career, has lived through many events, met all kinds of people, known many distinguished scientists, and tried, not always successfully, to bring some original contributions to a field of physics born after the Second World War, nuclear magnetism.

Editorial Reviews

'Anatole Abragam ...is a story-teller and his book is a delight.''The book bubbles with people and stories, it describes a history of physics which one can admire and it is a marvellous anti-dote and lesson for the jet-lagged committee scientist.' Physics World
