Einstein's Miraculous Year

This work brings together between its covers the 5 great papers Einstein published in 1905.

Edited, with introductions, by John Stachel, a physicist and manager of the Einstein archive.

I have read a few of the papers, but decided it was time to go cover to cover. Read the lot.

On the electrodynamics of moving bodies has become the most famous paper ever written in any field of science. It introduces relativity. The follow up to it produced the most famous equation ever devised: e = m (c squared).

Good fun.
