NO remainder marks or price clippings. Number line: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Tight spine, bright pages. Illustrated. 510 pages. Synopsis "One hundred years ago, Marie Curie discovered radioactivity, for which she won the Nobel Prize in physics. In 1911 she won an unprecedented second Nobel Prize, this time in chemistry, for isolating ne" Annotation A brilliant, often surprising portrait--based on new information--that is sure to be the definitive work on one of history's greatest women. Quinn shows in this richly textured work, a well-rounded, in-depth view of Curie as a scientist, a woman, a wife and a lover. 16 pages of photos; notes; index. Publishers Weekly Quinn (A Mind of Her Own: The Life of Karen Horney) presents here a carefully researched, well-rounded study of Curie (1867-1934), the physicist credited with isolating radium. Born Marie Sklodowska in Poland, she left her home to study in Paris, where she met and married physics professor Pierre Curie. Agreeing with earlier accounts, Quinn depicts their marriage as a devoted partnership. The Curies together made an investigation of radioactivity, for which they shared the 1903 Nobel Prize for physics. But Quinn breaks ground in her detailed description, drawn from newly available papers, of Marie's life after Pierre's accidental death in 1906. At first so grief-stricken she neglected her two daughters, Irene and Eva, Marie later had a love affair with French scientist Paul Langevin. Because Langevin was married, Marie was vilified by the French press and was almost denied the 1911 Nobel Prize for chemistry. Seller Inventory # 040851

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Discover the Lives of the Women that Forever Changed the Course of History !! This Book Contains the Fundamental History, Early Influences, Life Changing Events, Lasting Impact of Historical Figures such as Eve, Cleopatra, Isabel the Catholic, Marie Curie, Winnie Mandela, Benazir Bhutto, Juana Azurduy and Many Others! The 21st century stands witness to the achievements of some of the most influential women in the world. And yet, no matter how today s movers and shakers stand in contemporary rankings, how can we compare them to the giants of the past, the women who took history in their bare hands and bent it to their will? Whether they strode upon the stages of military power or at the altars of religious belief, they have left their marks on civilization. Eva, Juana Azurduy, Isabel the Catholic, Marie Curie, Winnie Mandela Benazir Bhutto were women whose lives changed the course of history. They would have been remarkable in any era in which they were born. But by living when they did, each defined the times in which they lived. Their actions transformed the imprint of their countries and the world. Eve, the prototype for the female gender, got things off to a bad start. Condemned by the male power structure for millennia following Eve s surrender to temptation, the fair sex received generations of unfair treatment based upon Eve s error in judgment. The fact that Adam was just as guilty managed to get a pass as authority was deemed the destiny of males because women had proven themselves weak and flawed. Women were expected to know their place, to accept their subjugation to the husbands and fathers who were given authority over them, and to obey without question. When, throughout history, women emerged from obscurity to take their place in government, science, struggles for liberty, the arts, or other arenas where they were expected to remain spectators and not performers, they were judged by a set of standards that regarded their gender as more important than their achievements. When they succeeded, as Cleopatra did in defending her realm, Isabella the Catholic did in ruling Castile, or Victoria did in reigning over an empire, they challenged the preconceived notions that believed a male would have done a better job. When they were trailblazers, as Marie Curie was in science, Mary Wollstonecraft in medicine, Benazir Bhutto and Hillary Rodham Clinton in politics, Winnie Mandela in activism, and Juana Azurduy in battle, they fought two battles: one to achieve their goals, the other against a power structure that would value a man s accomplishments over a woman s. They endured condemnation, hostility, scorn, poverty, violence, and even death in their crusades! The body of knowledge around this subject is so extensive that Dominique Atkinson has skillfully compressed thousands of books, scriptures and teachings of these historical figures into this easy to read book. Of each of these Great Women, you will learn who they were, where they came from, who influenced them, the fundamental turning points in their lives, and what where their lasting contributions to the world.

About this Item: The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In many ways, Marie Curie represents modern science. Her considerable lifetime achievements the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize, the only woman to be awarded the Prize in two fields, and the only person to be awarded Nobel Prizes in multiple sciences are studied by schoolchildren across the world. When, in 2009, the New Scientist carried out a poll for the Most Inspirational Female Scientist of All Time, the result was a foregone conclusion: Marie Curie trounced her closest runner-up, Rosalind Franklin, winning double the number of Franklin s votes. She is a role model to women embarking on a career in science, the pride of two nations Poland and France and, not least of all, a European Union brand for excellence in science. Making Marie Curie explores what went into the creation of this icon of science. It is not a traditional biography, or one that attempts to uncover the real Marie Curie. Rather, Eva Hemmungs Wirten, by tracing a career that spans two centuries and a world war, provides an innovative and historically grounded account of how modern science emerges in tandem with celebrity culture under the influence of intellectual property in a dawning age of information. She explores the emergence of the Curie persona, the information culture of the period that shaped its development, and the strategies Curie used to manage and exploit her intellectual property. How did one create and maintain for oneself the persona of scientist at the beginning of the twentieth century? What special conditions bore upon scientific women, and on married women in particular? How was French identity claimed, established, and subverted? How, and with what consequences, was a scientific reputation secured? In its exploration of these questions and many more, Making Marie Curie provides a composite picture not only of the making of Marie Curie, but the making of modern science itself.

About this Item: Atlantis. 2002 (Malmö). Förlagets pappband med skyddsomslag. 470, [1] s. Glest illustrerad. ISBN: 91-7486-604-4. "Vad fick en och annan att tveka om att Marie Curie borde hyllas när hon fick Nobelpriset 1911, vad fick stora skaror av människor att demonstrera mot en doktorinna från Sundsvall som skrev teaterpjäser? Vad drev borgerliga kvinnor att engagera sig i filantropiska räddningsprojekt för fallna kvinnor, varför startade de klubbar och föreningar? Hur engagerade de sig för freden, med sina visioner? På några få decennier kastades Sverige vid slutet av 1800-talet in i fabrikernas värld. Det var en tid då även kvinofrågan tog fart, dvs. frågan vad kvinnor skulle få lov att göra eller inte göra i samhället. För stora kvinnogrupper var detta en tid då rummet vidgades, men de måste utmana, omdefiniera och omförhandla rådande tankemönster. De måste förhålla sig till både traditionen och den problematiska moderniteten. I boken figurerar kända kvinnor som Frida Stéenhoff, Agda Montelius, Lydia Wahlström och Elin Wägner. Men vi får också möta mindre kända, som filantropen Louise Fryxell och den fallna kvinna hon sökte rädda, liksom konstnärliga kvinnor på studieresor i utlandet. 'Rummet vidgas' innehåller åtta essäer skrivna av forskare vid Lunds universitet.". Seller Inventory # d1989-b94kvhist

About this Item: The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In many ways, Marie Curie represents modern science. Her considerable lifetime achievements the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize, the only woman to be awarded the Prize in two fields, and the only person to be awarded Nobel Prizes in multiple sciences are studied by schoolchildren across the world. When, in 2009, the New Scientist carried out a poll for the Most Inspirational Female Scientist of All Time, the result was a foregone conclusion: Marie Curie trounced her closest runner-up, Rosalind Franklin, winning double the number of Franklin s votes. She is a role model to women embarking on a career in science, the pride of two nations Poland and France and, not least of all, a European Union brand for excellence in science. Making Marie Curie explores what went into the creation of this icon of science. It is not a traditional biography, or one that attempts to uncover the real Marie Curie. Rather, Eva Hemmungs Wirten, by tracing a career that spans two centuries and a world war, provides an innovative and historically grounded account of how modern science emerges in tandem with celebrity culture under the influence of intellectual property in a dawning age of information. She explores the emergence of the Curie persona, the information culture of the period that shaped its development, and the strategies Curie used to manage and exploit her intellectual property. How did one create and maintain for oneself the persona of scientist at the beginning of the twentieth century? What special conditions bore upon scientific women, and on married women in particular? How was French identity claimed, established, and subverted? How, and with what consequences, was a scientific reputation secured? In its exploration of these questions and many more, Making Marie Curie provides a composite picture not only of the making of Marie Curie, but the making of modern science itself.
