The Einstein Almanac.



In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's "miraculous year," in which he published some of his most significant work, including that detailing the theory of relativity, comes this annotated list of 300 of the physicist's papers and other publications. Few are better qualified for this task than Calaprice, who has administered the Einstein Translation Project at Princeton University for 20 years. Here, she covers topics of Einstein's interest ranging from German nationalism to Judaism, war, peace, atheism, and religion. Arranged in chronological order from 1901, when Einstein was first published, to 1955, when he died, the book includes a sampling of the interviews he gave and eulogies and tributes that he wrote. Calaprice provides context as it relates to Einstein, science, and world history. Johns Hopkins, 2005, 174 p., b&w photos, hardcover, $24.95.
