Abstract

Far from being a continous flow from its discovery down to its explanation, the actual history of superconductivity has been affected by numerous socio-political turbulences all along the XXth century, through hot and Cold wars. From the 30's to the 2003 Nobel prize for physics most of these turbulences are overviewed. (© 2005 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
