Brenda Maddox

Rosalind Franklin

The Dark Lady of DNA

€ 17.95

'A most moving and important biography, as well as an impressive account of a major event in the history of science'
- Lewis Wolpert, Literary Review

Although Rosalind Franklin took the crucial photograph of DNA revealing its double helix structure, her work was overlooked when, four years after her death, three men ? Maurice Wilkins of King's College London, Francis Crick of the Cavendish Laboratory and James Watson of Cambridge ? were awarded the Nobel Prize for the discovery of DNA.

In this compelling biography of Franklin, Brenda Maddox tells the story of a remarkably single-minded, forthright and tempestuous young woman, who at the age of fifteen decided she wanted to be a scientist, but who was airbrushed out of the greatest scientific discovery of the twentieth century.
