The theory of special relativity was introduced first and was later considered to be a special case of the more comprehensive theory of general relativity. General relativity is a theory of gravitation that Albert Einstein developed between and , with contributions from many others after "This exciting new edition of Einstein's book will be of real interest to scholars as well as general readers—and it is perfectly timed for the centennial of Einstein's general theory of relativity."—David Kaiser, author of How the Hippies Saved Physics: Science, Counterculture, and the Quantum Revival.

From the reviews: “Einstein’s Theory fits in an unusual place for introductory books on the topic. this work reaches the mathematical, theoretical, and conceptual understanding of a graduate course, assuming just basic algebraic skills. this is a rare book that can take the motivated reader with an elementary algebra background to a rigorous understanding of general relativity.

Top Einstein's theory of relativity by Born, Max, ; Brose, Henry L. (Henry Leopold), Publication date [] Topics Relativity Pages:

Einstein's relativity theory was presented as a principled, rather than a constructive, theory. A principled theory is one that begins with principles and then uses these principles to explain the phenomena; a constructive theory starts with the observat ions and culminates in theories that explain and reconcile those observations.
