RELATIVITY FOR THE LAYMAN (A PELICAN BOOK)
by James A. Coleman
published by Penguin, 1959
LIMITED TO ONE COPY ONLY, CONDITION 5/10
Beginning with the pioneering work of Galileo, Roemer, bradley, Fizeau, and Michelson in determining the velocity of light, this book proceeds to analyse the theories of representative thinkers, who were confronted with the great dilemma - does the ether exist?
What is Einstein's conception of our universe? Does it extend infinitely out into space without an end, or is it bounded in some way? The author answers these intriguing questions after his development of the Special and General Theories, making them perfectly clear with a minimum of Mathematics and outlining all of the proofs to date, including an elementary treatment of the basic theory of the atomic and hydrogen bombs.
A special feature of the book is the chapter on the recently announced Unified Field Theory, Einstein's great achievement in attempting to determine the underlying principles which will explain for all time all of the laws of the universe.
