9780143066897: C.V. Raman: A Biography

Celebrated for his path-breaking discovery, the Raman Effect, C.V. Raman (1888 1970) was the first non-white and the first Asian to receive a Nobel Prize in the sciences in 1930. He also became the first Indian director of Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore. While Raman s science is great and adequately documented, his personal story is generally not known. In this well-researched, comprehensive volume, the biographer sheds light on Raman s personal vision, idiosyncrasies and struggles. In the attempt to record his life, she traces the influences and events that made Raman the interesting man and scientist that he was.
