Summary
"After 1905, Einstein's miraculous year, physics would never be the same again. In those twelve months, Einstein shattered many cherished scientific beliefs in five great papers that would establish him as the world's leading physicist. For the first time, this book brings those papers together in an accessible format. An introduction by John Stachel explains their development and historical significance." "The best-known papers are the two that founded special relativity: On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies and Does the Inertia of a Body Depend on Its Energy Content? In the former, Einstein showed that absolute time had to be replaced by a new absolute: the speed of light. In the second, he asserted the equivalence of mass and energy, which would lead to the famous formula E = mc[superscript 2]."--Jacket
