The complete guide to everything you ever wanted to know about Einstein

This is the single most complete guide to Albert Einstein's life and work for students, researchers, and browsers alike. Written by three leading Einstein scholars who draw on their combined wealth of expertise gained during their work on the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, this authoritative and accessible reference features more than one hundred entries and is divided into three parts covering the personal, scientific, and public spheres of Einstein’s life.

An Einstein Encyclopedia contains entries on Einstein’s birth and death, family and romantic relationships, honors and awards, educational institutions where he studied and worked, citizenships and immigration to America, hobbies and travels, plus the people he befriended and the history of his archives and the Einstein Papers Project. Entries on Einstein’s scientific theories provide useful background and context, along with details about his assistants, collaborators, and rivals, as well as physics concepts related to his work. Coverage of Einstein’s role in public life includes entries on his Jewish identity, humanitarian and civil rights involvements, political and educational philosophies, religion, and more.

Commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the theory of general relativity, An Einstein Encyclopedia also includes a chronology of Einstein’s life and appendixes that provide information for further reading and research, including an annotated list of a selection of Einstein’s publications and a review of selected books about Einstein.

  • More than 100 entries cover the rich details of Einstein’s personal, professional, and public life
  • Authoritative entries explain Einstein’s family relationships, scientific achievements, political activities, religious views, and more
  • More than 40 illustrations include photos of Einstein and his circle plus archival materials
  • A chronology of Einstein’s life, appendixes, and suggestions for further reading provide essential details for further research

L'autore:

Alice Calaprice is the author of several popular books on Einstein, including The Ultimate Quotable Einstein (Princeton). Daniel Kennefick is associate professor of physics at the University of Arkansas and an editor of the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein. Robert Schulmann, former director of the Einstein Papers Project and editor of the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, is coeditor of Einstein on Politics (Princeton).

Dalla quarta di copertina:

"A fascinating and exceptionally readable reference volume for anyone interested in Einstein as a personality, scientist, political figure, or humanitarian. The authors make clear how we have come to know what we know about Albert Einstein. They also place him within networks of biographical profiles of family members, friends, romantic interests, teachers, collaborators, and colleagues, discrediting myths of Einstein as a solitary man. This is a valuable resource by three accomplished Einstein scholars."--Mary Jo Nye, author of Blackett: Physics, War, and Politics in the Twentieth Century

"Finally, here's a compendium of Einstein facts and information from the people who know him best, the wonderful scholars who have been editing his papers. This volume is a treasure trove. It's both informative and a lot of fun to browse and savor."--Walter Isaacson, author of Einstein: His Life and Universe

"The authors are well-known Einstein scholars with an intimate knowledge of the great physicist's life and work. They have put together a most welcome encyclopedic reference work for both laypersons and experts."--Tilman Sauer, University of Bern

"This book embodies a remarkably comprehensive synthesis of the life and works of Albert Einstein. The authors are extremely qualified for the task at hand, and all throughout they abundantly display their expertise and good sense in accounting for the various and multifaceted topics. If one needs to find a single-volume encyclopedia on Einstein, this is it."--Alberto A. Martínez, author of Kinematics: The Lost Origins of Einstein's Relativity

"Three Einstein scholars cover in exquisite detail the scientific, public and private lives of Einstein.... The accessibility and detail makeAn Einstein Encyclopediaan important entry in any Einstein collection."--Symmetry Magazine

"An Einstein Encyclopediais an invaluable companion to the serious Einstein researcher."--Cosmos Magazine
