Book: Sidelights on Relativity Author: Albert Einstein, 1879–1955 First published: 1922. The original book is in the public domain in the United States.

Sidelights on Relativity book. Sadly, this short book does nothing to really expand on Einstein's theory. It was more like a brief summary of Relativity rather than any independant sidelights.

This little book, Sidelights on Relativity, presents two lectures given by Einstein. The first, concerns the relation between the ether concept and general relativity. Einstein concludes that the concept of empty space in general relativity is an existing entity, which may have properties (in analogy to the ether), but these properties are not mechanical or material in any sense, neither solid nor fluid. The lectures are described as "devoid of complicated equations and abstruse terminology".

Critical Acclaim for The Theory of Relativity: "This book constitutes an indispensable part of a library on relativity. Other books that Einstein wrote that address relativity are The Meaning of Relativity,The Principle of Relativity, and Relativity: The Special and the General Theory. This short book contains two essays: "Ether and the Theory of Relativity" (1920), and "Geometry and Experience" (1921); both essays were based on lectures Einstein gave.

In 1905, a German technical journal, *Annalen der Physik, *published a remarkable paper by a young clerk in the patent office at Berne, Switzerland. The clerk was Albert Einstein. The paper outlined his Special Theory of Relativity, a revolutionary physical theory which discarded the concept of absolute motion in favor of relative motion in the context of a four-dimensional continuum of space-time. It proved to be the most profound revolution in physics since Newton.About ten years later, building on his earlier work, Einstein formulated the General Theory of Relativity in which he offered a new solution to the great problem of gravitation, postulating the non-Euclidean character of the space-time continuum. Together, the two theories constituted a radically reoriented way of looking at the physical universe, an approach that solved many of the unresolved difficulties of classical mechanics and paved the way for great advances in 20th-century physics. This concise volume contains two addresses by Dr. Einstein outlining aspects of the theories. *Ether and Relativity* (1920), delivered at the University of Leyden, discusses the properties demanded of the ether of space by the theory of relativity. *Geometry and Experience *(1921), given at the Prussian Academy of Sciences, describes the limits within which the Euclidean or any other practical geometric system can be held to be approximately true in connection with the concept of a finite universe.Both lectures are reprinted here complete and unabridged; both express elegant ideas in simple prose devoid of complicated equations or abstruse terminology; both offer scientists and laypeople unparalleled insight into the seminal thinking of the 20th century's greatest physicist.
