  • Macht - Eigensinn - Engagementby Angela Pilch Ortega; Andrea Bernhard; Regina Mikula; Rudolf Egger

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2010; US$ 27.44

    Die Begriffe, mit denen eine Gesellschaft beschrieben wird, sind Ergebnisse von D- tungsversuchen rivalisierender Interessensgruppen und deren Weltsicht. Die hier in die Diskussion gebrachten Prinzipien, Urteile und Überzeugungen bestimmen in - ren Interpretationsräumen das soziale Gewebe, innerhalb dessen wir unser Leben interpretieren. Gesellschaftliche... more...

  • Einstein and Religionby Max Jammer

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 37.50 US$ 30.00

    The philosophy of religion and the quest for spiritual truth preoccupied Albert Einstein--so much that it has been said "one might suspect he was a disguised theologian." Nevertheless, the literature on the life and work of Einstein, extensive as it is, does not provide an adequate account of his religious conception and sentiments. Only fragmentarily... more...

  • A Student's Guide to Einstein's Major Papersby Robert E Kennedy

    OUP Oxford 2012; US$ 44.99 US$ 38.69

    In 1905 Albert Einstein produced breakthrough work in three major areas of physics (atoms and Brownian motion, quanta, and the special theory of relativity), followed, in 1916, by the general theory of relativity. This book develops the detail of the papers, including the mathematics, to guide the reader in working through them. more...

  • Einstein's Physicsby Ta-Pei Cheng

    OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 54.99 US$ 47.29

    Many regard Albert Einstein as the greatest physicist since Newton. What exactly did he do that is so important in physics? We provide an introduction to his physics at a level accessible to an undergraduate physics student. All equations are worked out in detail from the beginning. more...

  • Einstein and the Quantumby A. Douglas Stone

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 19.95 US$ 15.96

    Einstein and the Quantum reveals for the first time the full significance of Albert Einstein's contributions to quantum theory. Einstein famously rejected quantum mechanics, observing that God does not play dice. But, in fact, he thought more about the nature of atoms, molecules, and the emission and absorption of light--the core of what we now... more...

  • Einstein: The First Hundred Yearsby Maurice Goldsmith; Alan Mackay; James Woudhuysen

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Einstein: The First Hundred Years presents the great contribution of Albert Einstein to the development of science. This book discusses the significant role of Einstein's existence as a scientist who turned out to be a great public figure that changed the society's consciousness of science for good. Organized into five parts encompassing 17 chapters,... more...

  • Relativity Made Relatively Easyby Andrew M. Steane

    OUP Oxford 2012; US$ 54.99 US$ 47.29

    This book unfolds the subject of Relativity for undergraduate students of physics. It fills a gap between introductory descriptions and texts for researchers. Assuming almost no prior knowledge, it allows the student to handle all the Relativity needed for a university course, with explanations as simple, thorough, and engaging as possible. more...

  • Secrets of the Old Oneby Jeremy Bernstein

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 19.53

    Beginning on the 18th of March, 1905,at approximately eight week intervals, the noted German physics journal Annalen der Physik received three hand-written manuscripts from a relatively unknown patent examiner in Bern. The patent examiner was the twenty-six year old Albert Einstein and the three papers would set the agenda for twentieth century physics.... more...

  • The Einstein Dossiersby Anne Hentschel; Siegfried Grundmann

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 48.91

    In 1919 the Prussian Ministry of Science, Arts and Culture opened a dossier on "Einstein's Theory of Relativity." It was rediscovered by the author in 1961 and is used in conjunction with numerous other subsequently identified 'Einstein' files as the basis of this fascinating book. In particular, the author carefully scrutinizes Einstein's FBI file... more...

  • Einstein?s Struggles with Quantum Theoryby Dipankar Home; Andrew Whitaker

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 152.41

    Einstein?s Struggles with Quantum Theory: A Re-Appraisal, presents an account of all aspects of Einstein?s encounter with quantum theory. Until recently it was accepted that, after important early work, Einstein was simply unable to follow Niels Bohr?s approach to quantum theory, and that Einstein?s own views, centered on realism, were of no interest.... more...
