Synopses & Reviews
It is now a century since Einstein's theories of Special and General Relativity revolutionized our view of the universe. Introducing Relativity plots a visually accessible course through Einstein's thought experiments that have given shape to contemporary physics. Scientists from Isaac Newton to Stephen Hawking add their unique contributions to this story. Einstein's legacy is reviewed in the most advanced frontiers of physics today - black holes, gravitational waves, the accelerating universe and string theory.
