Alan Turing: The Enigma

Without this book, the real Alan Turing might fade into obscurity or at least the easy caricature of an eccentric British mathematician. And to the relief of many, because Turing was a difficult person: an unapologetic homosexual in post-victorian england; ground-breaking mathematician; utterly indifferent to social conventions; arrogantly original (working from first principles, ignoring precedents); with no respect for professional boundaries (a 'pure' mathematician who taught himself engineering and electronics).

Andrew Hodges

Andrew Hodges (born in London, 1949) is a mathematician, an author and a pioneer of the gay liberation movement of the 1970s. For the past decades (since 1972) Hodges has focused his research activities on the twistor theory — the new approach to the problems of fundamental physics pioneered by the mathematician Roger Penrose. He is perhaps best known as the author of "Alan Turing: The Enigma", the story of the extraordinary British computer pioneer and codebreaker. The book was listed as one of the essential 50 books of all time in the The Guardian, 1 June 2002 [ [http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4425446,00.html"A library for all seasons" in "The Guardian" (June 1, 2002)] ] . He is also the author of works that popularize science and mathematics. He is currently a Tutorial Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford University.
