The focus of Spectrum is the range of contemporary ideas that runs from conservative to liberal to radical conceptions of state and society, rarely considered in the same optic. It looks at the theories of major minds of the twentieth-century Right, including Carl Schmitt, Leo Strauss and Friedrich von Hayek; liberal philosophers such as John Rawls, Jurgen Habermas and Norberto Bobbio; and significant figures in the culture of the Left: the historians Edward Thompson, Robert Brenner and Eric Hobsbawm; the classicist Sebastiano Timpanaro; the sociologist Goran Therborn; the novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The book concludes with some comparative observations on the two leading intellectual periodicals of the UK and USA, the London Review of Books and New York Review of Books; and a piece of family history.

Poetry is “closest to the heart.” Through its symbols, word pictures, intuition, feelings and emotions it is a hint of history, the momentary present and a visionary tool of the future. A poem or a painting is analogous to an iceberg—10% visible, 90% hidden meaning. “The reader provides the narrative.” These poems, with the exception of five or six, were written after 2000. They show my explorations into the arts, love, people I met along the way, my protestations, introspections, and new perspectives I gained after times of change, personal problems and separations from those I love. The poems enabled me to find new strength, to harness my thoughts of years past, to live peaceably in the present and to recognize that a future of dreams and hopes can become reality.

Mapping the Spectrum

'Physicists, chemists and astronomers, as well as historians and philosophers of science and ideas, and the intelligent layman will all find much that is thought provoking and fascinating in this book, which also includes an extensive bibliography.' -Astrophysics and Space ScienceThis book describes how advances in recording and printing technologies have influenced the research and teaching style of succeeding generations of physicists, chemists, and astronomers, particularly from the boom of spectrum analysis in the 1860s until the advent of quantum mechanics. Seemingly disparate strands such as spectrochemistry and cartography, instrument-design and science education are woven into the rich tapestry of one of the most fascinating and influential research-technologies of the late 19th and early 20th century.
