Professor Mendel Sachs's contributions have been wide-ranging and the lectures presented at the symposium honouring him on his retirement, and from which this book is taken, encompassed a broad spectrum. The topics covered include solar physics, quantum mechanics, crystallography, elementary particles, logic and philosophy, and the history of physics. Also included is a poem by Robert Creeley, composed especially for the symposium. Harvey Breverman, an artist and professor of art, attended the symposium and sketched the lecturers and recorded some of the material they presented (as seen from the eyes of an artist!). These drawings are reproduced in duotone throughout the volume. There are post-banquet reminiscences of turbulent times at the university in the late 1960s by noted author and computer guru Cliff Stoll, and T.Y. Wu and Sachs exchange greetings and comments regarding their discussions of the twin paradox in the 1970s. Sachs closes the volume with an autobiographical chapter.
