9780521570824: The Rise of the Standard Model: A History of Particle Physics from 1964 to 1979

Based on a conference held at Stanford University, this book gives the most comprehensive and up-to-date account of an exciting physics revolution--the rise of the Standard Model. The third volume of a series recounting the history of particle physics, this volume focuses on the Standard Model, which explains the microstructure of the world in terms of quarks and leptons and their interactions. Major contributors include Steven Weinberg, Murray Gell-Mann, Michael Redhead, Silvan Schweber, Leon Lederman, and John Heilbron. A collaboration of physicists and historians of science, the wide-ranging articles explore the detailed scientific experiments, the institutional settings in which they took place, and the ways in which the many details of the puzzle fit together to account for the Standard Model.

Review:

'... a beautifully produced collection of essays by most of the leading scientists involved - including no fewer than eight Nobel laureates - and several eminent historians ... both practitioners and knowledgeable bystanders can draw inspiration from these reflections on what may turn out to have been the golden age of particle physics.' Graham Farmelo, New Scientist

'The volume is informative and useful to historians of physics.' Helge Kragh, Centaurus

'... this book is ... worthwhile , timely and valuable.' R. Barlow, European Journal of Physics
