Synopsis
This personal account will delight earth scientists, physicists and general readers with an interest in earth science, whilst historians of science will find a wealth of personal recollections of key figures in the continental drift story.

From Book News, Inc. ®, Portland, OR
Geophysicist Roman recounts his Rumanian roots and the period spend in Newcastle and Paris in 1968-69, but mostly focuses on his time at Cambridge between 1969 and 1973, when the theory of plate tectonics was just being born and nurtured. His account is personal rather than scientific, and portrays the climate rather than the facts of the milieu.

Book Info
Presents an account of the impressions Western culture made on the author, a young researcher from behind the Iron curtain, as a personal history of the developing new science of plate tectonics.
