Product description

Review

"Galison provides a unique and enlightening view on the origin of time as we know it in the modern age."

Few books have ever made Einstein's work more accessible or more engrossing for general readers. "

This is how twentieth-century science really began....Engaging, original, and absolutely brilliant.--James Gleick

An easy-reading but penetrating book. [Galison] brings the story of time to life as a story of wires and rails, precision maps, and imperial ambitions, as well as a story of physics and philosophy.

Galison provides a unique and enlightening view on the origin of time as we know it in the modern age.

About the Author

Peter Galison is Mallinckrodt Professor for the History of Science and of Physics at Harvard University. He is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and the Max Planck Prize, as well as the Pfizer Prize for the Best Book in the History of Science for Image and Logic.
