Overview
My life with Enrico Fermi.In this absorbing account of life with the great atomic scientist Enrico Fermi, Laura Fermi tells the story of their emigration to the United States in the 1930's-part of the widespread movement of scientists from Europe to the New World that was so important to the development of the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. Combining intellectual biography and social history, Laura Fermi traces her husband's career from his childhood, when he taught himself physics, through his rise in the Italian university system concurrent with the rise of fascism, to his receipt of the Nobel Prize in 1938, and his odyssey to Columbia University, Los Alamos, and the University of Chicago.
