The Quotable Einstein by Albert Einstein

Regular price $13.50 Sale

Albert Einstein was a prolific - and often thoughtful and gifted - writer, and he is immensely quotable. This collection of approximately 550 quotations by and about Einstein for the first time arranges his thoughts and ideas thematically. Here we can easily find Einstein's thoughts on everything from America and Americans, Germans and Germany, Jews and Zionism, war and peace, politics, religion, and science to more personal subjects, such as abortion, youth and aging, love and marriage, music, and pets. There is something to please everyone - and something to offend everyone. Also included are sections on what Einstein has said about other famous people, what others have said about him, a chronology containing biographical data, an updated family tree that includes great-great-grandchildren, answers to the most common questions about Einstein, and a selected bibliography. The book includes an engaging foreword by Princeton physicist Freeman Dyson. To help the reader or researcher, two indexes are provided. The Index of Key Words will help readers find familiar quotations, and the Subject Index will lead them to subjects of particular interest. The book provides documentation, generally to primary sources such as the Einstein Archive and The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein. This 1996 Princeton University Press Hardback is in Good condition.
