Aba, the Glory and the Torment: The Life of Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky

Front Cover

Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky was one of the greatest scientists of modern times. However, because of his extraordinary findings in many different disciplines, he fell victim to one of the most intense slander campaigns since the Middle Ages. In this book, his daughter Ruth gives a very personal account of this special man: his family background, his eventful life, his personality, his extraordinary fate and his scientific work. More than 200 pictures from different periods of his life - from Russia and Central Europe between the World Wars to Palestine and the United States - make this book a vivid documentation of an entire era.
