Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.: Johns Hopkins Univ Pr, 2004. First edition. 12mo. 174 pp. Perhaps nothing reflects the breadth and scope of Albert Einstein's brilliance, his interests, and his influence better than his publications—hundreds of scientific papers, books, essays, reviews, and opinion pieces, ranging from relativity theory and quantum physics to nationalism, Judaism, war, peace, and education. Alice Calaprice, the former in-house editor of Einstein's papers at Princeton University Press, offers this essential portrait of Einstein through his year-by-year output, explaining his 300 most important publications and setting them into the context of his life, the realm of science, and world history. It is also, according to Jonathan Bagger at The Johns Hopkins University, "a really fun book—the type that can be opened at any page and read enjoyably." New in new dustjacket.. First Edition. Cloth. New/New. 12 mo..
