Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From reviews of the previous edition: "Miller has written a superb, perhaps definitive, historical study of Einsteins special theory of relativity.... One comes away from the book with a respect for both the creative genius of the man and his nerve: he simply brushed aside much of the work that was going on around him." - The New Yorker
