Description
Drawing on new archival material, including Curie's journal, this biography presents new information about her life in Poland; her partnership with her husband; her affair, after her husband's death, with a married scientist which nearly cost her the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1911; and the difficulty of being a female student in late 19th century Paris. Also clearly describes her scientific work and fits it into the larger story of the nuclear age. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
