Do black holes form links to other universes or are they the mothers of new Big Bangs? Is rising global population with higher and higher standards of living the implicit cause of environmental catastrophe? Can religion and science ever be compatible?
These questions and many more are explored in Keeping up with Time. Dr Anisur Rahman, a retired nuclear safety specialist, has compiled forty-three of his previously published articles on science and technology, global issues and religion. Intending to challenge readers' perceptions of truth and reality, the author presents scientific theories, technical data and historical facts in a highly readable style. The individual articles are short and thought-provoking, with complex topics explained clearly and concisely, using verified facts and unbiased analysis. The book is complemented by over 60 photographs and illustrations.
Scientific topics range from Newton to Einstein and include black holes, quantum mechanics and gravitational waves.
Global issues include the writings of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Nelson Mandela's life story, climate change, and a discussion of Orwellian dystopia.
Religious topics include science and Islam, religion and morality, and the brutality of religious fanaticism.
Issues relating to the partition of India and Bengal and the creation of Pakistan and later Bangladesh are also discussed.
Covering a wide range of subject matter and current affairs, Keeping up with Time will doubtless inspire lively debate and further study among its readers.
