My new book on Einstein and the history of the general theory of relativity

Here is the dust jacket of my new scholarly book on the history of general relativity, to be released on… my Birthday:

General Relativity Conflict and Rivalries: Einstein’s polemics with Physicists.

Cover

The book is illustrated by me and discusses the history of general relativity, gravitational waves, relativistic cosmology and unified field theory between 1905 and 1955:

The development of general relativity (1905-1916), “low water mark” period and several results during the “renaissance of general relativity” (1960-1980).

Conversations I have had more than a decade ago with my PhD supervisor, the late Prof. Mara Beller (from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem), comprise major parts of the preface and the general setting of the book. However, the book presents the current state of research and many new findings in history of general relativity.

My first book:

Einstein’s Pathway to the Special Theory of Relativity (April, 2015)

includes a wide variety of topics including also the early history of general relativity.

  1. מזל טוב ליום הולדתך 🙂 נראה שאת גאה באיור לא פחות מאשר בספר 🙂 האם יש סיכוי שאחד מספרייך יתורגם לעברית?

    1. אני אחשוב על לתרגם את הספרים לעברית.
      כן זה קשה לעשות את האיורים, לתפוש את ההבעות של איינשטיין, זה לוקח הרבה זמן לצייר כל ציור.
