    Title: Black Holes & Baby Universes & Other Essays

    Readers worldwide have come to know the work of  Stephen Hawking through his phenomenal million-copy  hardcover best-seller A Brief History of  Time. Bantam is proud to present the  paperback edition of Dr. Hawking's first new book  since that event, a collection of fascinating and  illuminating essays, and a remarkable interview  broadcast by the BBC on Christmas Day, 1992. These  fourteen pieces reveal Hawking variously as the  scientist, the man, the concerned world citizen,  and-always-the rigorous and imaginative thinker.  Hawking's wit, directness of style, and absence of pomp  characterize all of them, whether he is remembering  his first experience at nursery school; calling  for adequate education in science that will enable  the public to play its part in making informed  decisions on matters such as nuclear disarmament;  exploring the origins or the future of the universe;  or reflecting on the history of A Brief  History of Time. Black Holes and Baby  Universes is an important work from one of the  greatest minds of the twentieth century.
