**Description**:

A classic of physics -- the first systematic presentation of Einstein's theory of relativity. Long one of the standard texts in the field, this excellent introduction probes deeply into Euclidean space, Riemann's space, Einstein's general relativity, gravitational waves and energy, and laws of conservation.
