Einstein : The Life and Times by Ronald W. Clark (1971, Hardcover)
Today, 16 years after his death at the age of 76, Albert Einstein is remarkably alive in contemporary science. Rather, as a quick look current research journals or at the Science Citation Index can show, his work is still the acknowledged base of new research results in an astonishing variety of problems in physics, cosmology and to some extent also in chemistry. Because science grows cumulatively and moves fast, scientists usually do not cite work done more than a few years ago and are even less apt to look back for reasons of sentimentality or hero worship. So, when they keep referring to and using Einstein's results, it is for good reasons. Indeed, during the last decade it has turned out that some of the most exciting frontiers lie exactly in that branch where Einstein, with few followers but with the obstinacy of a prophet, did his work in his last decades, namely in general relativity theory. A rapidly growing number of historians of science, too, now work on Einstein and his influence.
