Summary

This book, suitable for interested post-16 school pupils, or undergraduates looking for a supplement to their course text, focuses on experimental/observational evidence and consequences of our view of gravity. The book includes short ‘interludes’ focusing on key figures in the field (Einstein, Eddington, Friedmann etc.), drawing out how their lives and views impinged on the development of general relativity. In this way, some philosophical implications of general relativity and quantum gravity are teased out. Jonathan Allday, a highly accomplished writer for this audience, brings his trademark clarity and engagement to the fascinating subjects which underpin so much of modern physics.
