Product Description

He was awarded the Nobel Price for physics in 1922 at the age of forty-three for his discovery of the photoelectric effect, a phenomenon seemingly far removed from the everyday concerns of his fellow man. Yet afterward Albert Einstein, through the sheer force of his character as much as his intellect, emerged as a prophet, moralist, and reformer whose views touched all of mankind.
Originally published in 1954, the year before his death, Ideas and Opinions presents the popular writings of the great physicist: pieces that reflect how Einstein's life was as he often said, "divided between politics and equations."
