While most available works on Einstein trace the origins and evolution of Einstein's views and theories, "Einstein and Our World", by award-winning science historian, educator, and Einstein scholar David C Cassidy, provides a fascinating account of the impact of Einstein's work and outlook upon contemporary culture and upon the scientific enterprise itself. This new edition, besides updating and revising the content of the first edition, includes a number of important new topics that could not be included in the original edition: more on Einstein's personal life in the light of recent revelations; a new section on Einstein and peace; and an assessment of Einstein's role in the post-September 11 era.
