Kurzbeschreibung

Nuclear physics between 1921 and 1947 shaped more than any
other science thepolitical landscape of our century and the
public opinion on physical research. Using quantitative
scientometric methods, a new branch in the history of
science, the author focuses on the developments of nuclear
physics in these formative years paying special attention to
theimpact of German emigrants on the evolution of the field
as a cognitive and social unity. The book is based on a
thorough analysis of various citation analyses thus
producing results that should be more replicable and more
objective. The scientometric techniques should complement
the more qualitative approach usually applied in historical
writing. This makes the text an interesting study also for
the historian in general.
