First edition of Teller’s classic work on the role of the scientist in the nuclear age. Octavo, original cloth. In very good condition.

Known colloquially as "the father of the hydrogen bomb", Hungarian-American theoretical physicist Edward Teller made numerous contributions to nuclear and molecular physics, spectroscopy, and surface physics. The Reluctant Revolutionary contains three lectures in which Teller discusses the interaction of science and 20th century politics and his views on the role of the scientist in the midst of the potential threat of nuclear war. Teller states, "If freedom is to survive, it will be by a miracle - the miracle that millions of free and independent human beings can in fact perform. We should establish world order by the slow and safe process of evolution, but we don't have the time. It must be done be revolution. And so I am a revolutionary, and a most reluctant one."
