Reviews

"Ball's book shows what can happen to morality when cleverness and discovery are valued above all else" -- Philip Maughan * New Statesman * "Ball does an outstanding service by reminding us how powerful and sometimes confusing the pressures were... Packed with dramatic, moving and even comical moments" -- Robert P Crease * Nature * "A fascinating account of the moral dilemmas faced by German physicists working within Nazism. Impeccably researched" -- Ian Thomson * Tablet * "An engrossing and disturbing book" -- Andrew Robinson * History Today * "[A] fine book" -- Christopher Coker * Times Literary Supplement *
