The Life and Work of Sir Jagadis C Bose: An Indian Pioneer of Science


THE author of this biography was fortunate in his subject: it was no hard task to write an interesting chronicle of so eventful a life and of so striking a personality. Sir J. C. Bose is equally fortunate in his biographer: his life and work are set forth with conspicuous literary skill, scientific knowledge, and sympathy with the East. The result is a singularly instructive and eminently readable book.
