Professor Stephen Hawking was an icon of science, a rare example of an exceptional science communicator who also published groundbreaking work in his field. His research on Hawking radiation and singularity theorems greatly advanced our collective knowledge of the universe. He then appeared in shows and at events worldwide and became the most recognizable theoretical physicist of the last 50 years. In Black Holes and Baby Universes, Professor Hawking provides thirteen essays and an extended interview transcript that cover a wide range of subjects, from the scientific to the personal. These essays are renowned for their lucidity, and the collection could be thought of as a microcosm of his career–a perfect blend of humanity and deeply profound and difficult scientific theory.

This first American edition, first printing is in near fine condition. In the original half cloth boards, very nearly fine with only rubbing to foot of spine. Text block near fine with only minor creases to two preface pages, not affecting text. In the original dust jacket, near fine with only faint rubbing to edges.

A terrific first American edition by Stephen Hawking.
