A. M. Dirac. Each of the distinguished contributors reviews Diracs work and discusses its development in some detail. Since Diracs work ranged widely, the resulting volume constitutes a valuable survey of the state of quantum mechanics. A small part of the book contains personal reminiscences of Dirac in Cambridge and of his early visits to the USA and gives a historical account of the development of quantum mechanics during the decade 1924 1933, aptly termed the golden age of theoretical physics.
