Genius & Anxiety: How Jews Changed the World, 1847-1947 by Norman Lebrecht
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 496 MB
Overview: A unique chronicle of the years 1847-1947, the century when the Jewish people changed the world – and it changed them. In a hundred-year period, a handful of men and women changed the way we see the world. Many of them are well known – Marx, Freud, Proust, Einstein, Kafka. Others have vanished from collective memory despite their enduring importance in our daily lives. Without Karl Landsteiner, for instance, there would be no blood transfusions or major surgery. Without Paul Ehrlich, no chemotherapy. Without Siegfried Marcus, no motor car. Without Rosalind Franklin, genetic science would look very different. Without Fritz Haber, there would not be enough food to sustain life on earth.
