Philip Ball examines the moral choices made by three eminent scientists - Max Planck, Peter Debye and Werner Heisenberg - who found themselves caught between science's idealistic goals and the tyranny of the Nazi regime. The stories of these very different personalities - their compromises and concessions, their flaws and misjudgements, their acts of kindness and bravery - are shown to be instructive illustrations of the perennial dilemmas caused by the relationship between science and politics.
