The Letters of T. S. Eliot Volume 4: 1928-1929

Volume 4 of the letters of T. S. Eliot, which brings the poet, critic, editor and publisher into his forties, documents a period of anxious and fast-moving professional recovery and personal and spiritual consolidation. Following the withdrawal of financial support by his patron Lady Rothermere, Faber & Gwyer (subsequently Faber & Faber) eventually takes over the responsibility for Eliot's literary periodical The Criterion. He supplements his income as a fledgling publisher, 'just as I did ten years ago, by reviewing, articles, prefaces, lectures, broadcasting talks, and anything that turns up.' His work as editor is internationalist above all else, and Eliot makes contact with a number of eminent and emergent writers and thinkers, as well as forging links with European reviews ('all of which have endeavoured to keep the intellectual blood of Europe circulating throughout the whole of Europe'). Eliot's responsibilities during this period extend to caring for Vivien, who returns home after months in a French psychiatric hospital and whom he looks after with anxious fortitude; and the personal correspondence with his mother closes with her death in September 1929.

In the Pacific, Australia entered the multi-lateral ANZUS treaty, consolidating the nation’s independence of Britain; Communist China pressed its claims to replace Taiwan on the Security Council; Queen Elizabeth II began her long reign; and adventurism by Egypt set the stage for the Suez crisis. Despite Stalin’s death, the Soviet grip on eastern Europe grew.

This is the fourth and last volume of the invaluable publication At the Frontier of Particle Physics: Handbook of QCD. In this volume the reader will find three important sections. The first is devoted to QCD-based phenomenology. It covers issues deeply woven into the fabric of particle physics: weak interactions of light quarks (J Bijnens) and heavy quarkonium physics (A Hoang). The second section is a report on recent advances in the understanding of confinement in three dimensions in the Georgi–Glashow model (I Kogan and A Kovner). The third section deals with lattice QCD (A Kronfeld) and loop equations (A Dubin and Yu Makeenko). The five reviews in Volume 4, together with the 33 reviews in Volumes 1–3, constitute a full encyclopedia, covering all aspects of quantum chromodynamics as we know it today. The articles have been written by recognized experts in this field. Combining features of a handbook and a textbook, this is the most comprehensive source of information on the current status of QCD. It is intended for students as well as physicists — both theorists and experimentalists. Contents:QCD and Weak Interactions of Light Quarks (J Bijnens)Heavy Quarkonium Dynamics (A H Hoang)Monopoles, Vortices and Strings: Confinement and Confinement in 2+1 Dimensions at Weak Coupling (I I Kogan & A Kovner)Uses of Effective Field Theory in Lattice QCD (A S Kronfeld)Loop Equations and Nonperturbative QCD (A Dubin & Y Makeenko)Appendices:Pair Production by a Linearly Polarized Quantum (B L Ioffe)A Method for Production of Polarized Neutrons (B L Ioffe) Readership: Graduate students, lecturers and researchers in high energy physics. Keywords:Reviews:“The historical articles are interesting and, in places, riveting … a practitioner in any field-theory discipline, especially — a beginning practitioner, can spend rewarding hours delving into these descriptions. At the Frontier of Particle Physics will remain useful for a long time.”Physics Today
