dc.description.abstractIn post-Stalin Soviet Union, dissidents used underground networks to distribute censored material. This activity, which was called samizdat(translates to “self-published”) put its practitioners at grave risk. Though certainly not nearly as risky, it requires substantial courage for scientists to “come out” and make public their philosophical thoughts. It likewise requires a large dose of chutzpah for one to publish one’s own emails as a book. In “Coming of Age with Quantum Information” Christopher Fuchs—who is a Senior Researcher at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, in Waterloo, Canada—does both of these things. The book grew out of his correspondence with friends and colleagues between 1995 and 2001. and which he started to distribute—also electronically—as his “samizdat”.en_US
