Publisher Comments:

Einstein: The Life and Times is an account of the life and science of Albert Einstein, one of the greatest physicists of all time, viewed against the intellectual, scientific, and political background of this age.

Vivid and readable, Einstein: The Life and Times gives the reader an intimate view of the great man who moved ahead in the world of theoretical physics with daring, determination, and originality, and who eventually shaped and participated in the major events of modern times.

The problems he worked to solve and the new view of the universe created by his solutions led not only to today's modern gadgets (from television to nuclear power reactors) but also to a new approach to science and the way in which we now see the world.

Albert Einsteins's dream was to formulate a single, ultimate theory that would explain the existence of all matter, all energy, and all forces in the universe: the unified field theory, which continued to escape him until the end of his life. The author, Ronald W. Clark, clearly describes Einstein's science without recourse to mathematics, and explains his contributions to theoretical physics (including the Special Theory and the General Theory of Relativity) against the Newtonian world view.

Also here are Einstein's associates who led mankind into the nuclear age: Max Planck, Niels Bohr, Madame Curie, Ernest Rutherford among others, with insight into how they worked together and built upon each other's discoveries to overturn our most fundamental assumptions.

With over two hundred photographs, this first abundantly illustrated life of Albert Einstein brings an added dimension through pictures to the fascinating sotry of the career and substance of a genius; to the man who steadfastly maintained that God does not play dice with the universe.
