Concerning the late Irving Adler, he was a victim of McCarthyism in the
It was because of his being kicked out of teaching that he turned to the
writing of popular texts on math and science. I read many of those books
when I was a kid.
A couple of his books that stand out for me include his, "The Elementary
Mathematics of the Atom," which included discussions of quantum mechanics
as applied to the atom. And his book, "Thinking machines, a layman's
introduction to logic, Boolean algebra, and computers." Although
computer technology has made quantum leaps since the time that Adler
wrote that book, the basic underlying principles of computers, discussed
in that book, have not changed much at all.
