Albert Einstein, the Human Side: Glimpses from His Archives (New in Paperback) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Modesty, humor, compassion, and wisdom are the traits most evident in this illuminating selection of personal papers from the Albert Einstein Archives. The illustrious physicist wrote as thoughtfully to an Ohio fifth-grader, distressed by her discovery that scientists classify humans as animals, as to a Colorado banker who asked whether Einstein believed in a personal God. Witty rhymes, an exchange with Queen Elizabeth of Belgium about fine music, and expressions of his devotion to Zionism are but some of the highlights found in this warm and enriching book.

About the Author

Helen Dukas (1896-1982) became Einstein's secretary in 1928 and, after his death in 1955, was a trustee of his literary estate and the archivist of his papers. Banesh Hoffmann (1906-1986) was a British mathematician and physicist who collaborated with Einstein on research on the general theory of relativity.
