E = Einstein
His Life, His Thought and His Influence on Our CultureBook - 2006
In the history of physics, there has been no greater visionary than Albert Einstein. Through his revolutionary Theory of Relativity, he fundamentally changed the way we look at the universe. But there is more to Einstein than just E=mc2--and this anthology of 30 fascinating essays, presented by three renowned scientist/editors, captures his various facets. Complete with more than 125 color illustrations and explanatory sidebars that make the information accessible to the layperson, these revelatory articles explore his life, theories, and legacy. They range from the scientific ("The Cosmos According to Eintein," "Time Travel in Einstein's Universe") to the political ("Einstein as Jew and Zionist," "Einstein and Nazi Science") to discussions of his role as an icon ("What's with the Hair?").
