... a wonderfully holistic tour of Maxwell's life and impact ... This work is highly recommended. It will be of interest to researchers and most certainly will enhance a library collection or serve as an anchor for a seminar in British history and/or the history of science. * Kenneth E. Hendrickson, Sam Houston State University *
This selection of highly detailed essays from academic physicists, mathematicians and historians of science seeks to do justice to Maxwell from many perspectives, looking at his life, his science, his mathematical abilities, his poetry and his religious faith. * Christine Evans-Pughe, Engineering & Technology, *
The same editorial team produced a wonderful book on another great Scottish Victorian mathematician, Lord Kelvin, and this new collection of essays looks equally enticing. * Tony Mann, Times Higher Education *
