Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other EssaysBook - 1993
Readers worldwide have come to know the work of Stephen Hawking through his phenomenal million-copy hardcover best-sellerA Brief History of Time. Bantam is proud to present the paperback edition of Dr. Hawking's first new book since that event, a collection of fascinating and illuminating essays, and a remarkable interview broadcast by the BBC on Christmas Day, 1992. These fourteen pieces reveal Hawking variously as the scientist, the man, the concerned world citizen, and-always-the rigorous and imaginative thinker. Hawking's wit, directness of style, and absence of pomp characterize all of them, whether he is remembering his first experience at nursery school; calling for adequate education in science that will enable the public to play its part in making informed decisions on matters such as nuclear disarmament; exploring the origins of the future of the universe; or reflecting on the history ofA Brief History of Time. Black Holes and Baby Universesis an important work from one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century.
