[An] engrossing history-biography of Cohn… Surgenor also provides historical insights into the origins of protein biochemistry as a discipline, the founding of the Biochemistry Department at Harvard, the mobilization of the country with respect to blood collections during and after the war, the transformation and modernization of the Red Cross, and beginnings of federal funding for basic and applied research… This book chronicles one of the less publicized “big science” projects of the last century.—J. M. Tomich, Choice
