About This Item

Oxford: Oxford University Press, November 1983. Trade Paperback. First paperback printing / full number line. Very Good+. Tanned, but unmarked. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Light reading wear. Not from a library. No remainder mark. xvi + 552 pages.

The author and Einstein were friends and correspondents for the last nine years of Einstein's life. This definitive account of the life and work of the 20th century's most famous scientist draws on a wealth of previously unpublished papers and personal recollections to fill many gaps about what we know of Einstein's life. It deals with Einstein's interest in philosophy, his concern with Jewish destiny, and his opinions of great figures from Newton to Freud. Also depicts the state of physics at the turn of the century and how Einstein transformed the field.
