This book is draw from actual published lectures given by the Father of Relativity on the nature and implications of his theory.
Einstein remained in the public eye not only because of his scientific ideas, but because of his outspoken moral and political views. An ardent pacifist until his death in 1955, he spoke on an array of social topics, including the need for nuclear disarmament. This book is a compilation of his Stafford Lectures at Princeton University in 1921 and an overview of the theory of relativity. In its present form, it includes the original lectures, plus all new or revised material from the four previous editions. An essential encapsulation of the most radical picture of reality of our time, it is Albert Einstein's last scientific paper and a legacy of enormous significance.
