  • Relativity: A Very Short Introductionby Russell Stannard

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 7.99 US$ 6.87

    Einstein's theory of relativity shattered the world of physics - replacing Newtonian ideas of space and time with bizarre and counterintuitive conclusions: a world of slowing clocks and stretched space, black holes and curved space-time. This Very Short Introduction explores and explains the theory in an accessible and understandable way. more...

  • The Labyrinth of Timeby Michael Lockwood

    OUP Oxford 2005; US$ 16.99 US$ 14.61
