Summary
Few people have understood what Einstein has said, thought, and done, but many are hungry to know more about him. This companion volume to Abraham Pais's Subtle is the Lord ... enlarges on the way Einstein was perceived by the world at large. His becoming the scientist of greatest renown ever is largely the result of attention by the media, as the author has documented by delving in newspaper and magazine archives, from 1902 to the present. We also learn of his views on religion and on philosophy, his marital problems, and his contacts with personalities ranging from John D. Rockefeller to Charlie Chaplin to Freud to Ghandi. Interviews with Einstein, as well as reports on brief comments and longer addresses by him, help to convey his vivid style of expression as well as his great talent at formulation. He wrote and spoke about pacifism, supranationalism, civil liberties, and the rights and obligation of Jews and Arabs to live together harmoniously in the Middle East. Subjects he was interested in ranged from capital punishment to vegetarianism. These essays were written from the author's special perspective: he is a physicist and he knew Einstein personally for several years. His style is accessible and nonmathematical. This book provides essential information about Einstein the human being which will fascinate and inform both the specialist and the layman
