The Case of Paul Kammerer

The Most Controversial Biologist of His Time

  Author:   Klaus Taschwer, Michal Schwartz,  
  Publisher:  Bunim & Bannigan Ltd.

The Case of Paul Kammerer is a well-researched and highly readable historical account of one of the biggest, till today unsolved scientific scandals. Paul Kammerer, ‘the father of epigenetic,’ was a talented and idealistic biologist, whose ground-breaking research made headlines worldwide. Vienna at the turn of the 20th century, where Kammerer lived and worked, was at its creative peak yet already declining toward Nazism. The book that reads like a detective story, provides new evidence for the events that led to Kammerer’s tragic end while exposing the implicit yet dangerous links between science and politics.
