Editorial Reviews

Review

"Einstein's Generation is a magnificent achievement and a work of great scholarship. Staley succeeds brilliantly in providing new ground for understanding how Einstein gradually emerged as the central figure within the German physics community."

(Simon Mitton Times Higher Education)

"Richard Staley, a historian of science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has taken a novel approach to presenting the origins of the relativity revolution. His book reads not as a biography of Albert Einstein, but instead as a considered account of the technological and scientific innovations upon which Einstein’s groundbreaking theory was founded. Einstein’s Generation exposes readers to an era of turn-of-the-20th century scientists whose contributions have too often gone overlooked in histories of modern physics."
(Seed 2009-06-01)

2009 Choice Outstanding Academic Title
(Choice)

"Einstein's Generation succeeds at rethinking the story of relativity's emergence. It carefully unpacks and redisplays the canonical events along the road to Einstein's apotheosis in a valuable way.'
(British Journal for the History of Science)
