Getting the Measure of Einstein's Space and Time
by Len Zane - University of Nevada, Las Vegas
The space and time introduced by Albert Einstein is explained by examining a series of simple thought or 'gedanken' experiments. The development makes extensive use of spacetime diagrams to help readers appreciate the full extent of these changes.

Mechanics and Relativity
by Timon Idema - TU Delft Open
The reader is taken on a tour through time and space. Starting from the basic axioms formulated by Newton and Einstein, the theory of motion at both the everyday and the highly relativistic level is developed without the need of prior knowledge.
