Reviews

'It is beautifully presented and, given the contributor list, authoritative ... I wholeheartedly recommend it to researchers, postgraduate students and perhaps advanced undergraduates in the sciences.' Times Higher Education Supplement '... it is written at a level that can be digested by eager undergraduates but will also be instructive to experienced physicists. It is lavishly produced and good value - several physicist colleagues have passed on unsolicited praise of the level of presentation. ... The message of The New Physics for the Twenty-First Century is that the most fundamental problems remain elusive, but the magnificent tools that have been developed during the past decade have opened up new vistas on subjects once thought to be familiar.' Physics World 'The message of The New Physics for the Twenty-first Century is that the mostfundamental problems remain elusive, but the magnificent tools that have been developed during the past decade have opened up new vistas on subjects once thought to be familiar.' Physics Web ' ... accessible to a general readership. ... this is down to the freshness of the technical material, but it also presents topics that can be usefully pondered by those with little background in physics ... well worth perusing ... it is written at a level that can be digested by eager undergraduates but will also be instructive to experienced physicists. I is lavishly produced and good value.' Physics Web
