We present an overview of recent developments concerning modifications of the geometry of space-time to describe various physical processes of interactions among classical and quantum configurations. We concentrate in two main lines of research...

The author gives an account of general relativity theory without introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics, or philosophy. It is hoped that the book may also appeal to those who have gone into the subject more deeply.

This text reviews the development of Einstein's thought on general covariance (the fundamental physical principle of GTR), its relation to the foundations of general relativity and the evolution of the continuing debate over his viewpoint.
