One of the best-selling NEW YORK TIMES TIMES, The official book behind the Academy Award-winning film The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley It is only a bit exaggerated to say that the British mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954) registered the Allies of the Nazis, invented the computer and artificial intelligence, and planned to free homosexuals by decades–all before his suicide at the age of forty-oneThis New York Times-biography of the founder of computer science, with a new preface by the author that deals with Turing’s royal grace in 2013, is definitely the account of the extraordinary, the spirit and the lifeGrasping both the interior and exterior drama of Turing’s life, Andrew Hodges tells how Turing’s revolutionary idea of 1936 — the concept of a universal machine — laid the foundations of modern computing and Turing’s way presented the idea to practical realisation in 1945 with his electronic designThe book also tells how this work is directly related to Turing’s leading role in the break-up of the German Enigma encryption algorithms during World War II, a triumphant scientist who was critical to the Allied victory in the AtlanticAt the same time, it is the tragic story of a man who, despite his wartime service, was finally arrested, stripped of his security clearance, and forced to undergo humiliating treatment-programs everything to try to live honestly in a society that defines homosexuality as a crimeThe inspiration for a film starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, Alan Turing: The Enigma is a story with twists of mathematics, computer science, cryptography, and persecution of homosexuals
