Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford

by Sanborn C. Brown
MIT Press, 1979

Count Rumford was one of the most fascinating figures of science. On the one side he was a gifted experimenter and a prolific inventor who helped establish the foundations of modern physics; on the other he was a scheming adventurer, a cynical soldier of fortune, and a spy whose name was anathema to the patriots of the American Revolution. In this biography Professor Brown tells the story of Rumford's dual personality and exciting career.
