The Road to Relativity (IMAGE)
Marking the centenary of this remarkable achievement, Princeton University Press today announced the publication of two new books:
  • THE ROAD TO RELATIVITY: The History and Meaning of Einstein´s "The Foundation of General Relativity"By Hanoch Gutfreund and Jürgen Renn.Featuring the original manuscript of Einstein´s masterpiece
  • RELATIVITY: The Special and General Theory, 100th Anniversary Edition. With commentaries and background material by Hanoch Gutfreund and Jürgen Renn. Featuring the original manuscript by Albert Einstein
The co-authors are renowned experts in the field. Prof. Hanoch Gutfreund is professor emeritus of theoretical physics and a former president of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he currently serves as the academic director of the university´s Albert Einstein Archives. Prof. Jürgen Renn, whose books include The Genesis of General Relativity, is director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin.

In THE ROAD TO RELATIVITY: The History and Meaning of Einstein´s "The Foundation of General Relativity," Profs. Gutfreund and Renn provide an English translation of Einstein´s paper, accompanied by insightful page-by-page commentary that places the text in historical and scientific context. Gutfreund and Renn´s concise introduction traces Einstein´s journey from special to general relativity, and their essay "The Charm of a Manuscript" provides a delightful meditation on the varied afterlife of Einstein´s text.

Featuring an enthralling foreword by John Stachel, THE ROAD TO RELATIVITY is a handsome edition that also includes a biographical glossary, describing the intellectuals that influenced or were influenced by Einstein and his work; a comprehensive bibliography; suggestions for further reading; and numerous photos and illustrations throughout.

In RELATIVITY: The Special and the General Theory, 100th Anniversary Edition, Gutfreund and Renn present a new edition of the celebrated book that Einstein wrote about relativity for a popular audience. Einstein´s intention was "to give an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers, who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics."

This new edition features an authoritative English translation of the text, along with an introduction and reading companion by Gutfreund and Renn that examines the evolution of Einstein´s thinking and casts his ideas in a broader present-day context. A special chapter explores the history of and the stories behind the early foreign-language editions in light of the reception of relativity in different countries.

This edition also includes a survey of the introductions from those editions; covers from selected early editions; a letter from Walther Rathenau to Einstein discussing the book; and a revealing sample from Einstein´s handwritten manuscript. No other edition contains such a wealth of new and authoritative material, framing Einstein´s popular level book for a new century of readers.

Albert Einstein was a founder of the Hebrew University and one of its most loyal supporters. Einstein bequeathed his writings and intellectual heritage to the Hebrew University, including the rights to his image.
