Which geometries on a smooth manifold can serve as a spacetime structure? This question is comprehensively addressed from first principles, exploring the kinematics and gravitational dynamics of all tensorial geometries on a smooth manifold.

Contents: The origins of the theory; Michelson-Morley experiment and the Lorentz transformation; Laws of motion and electro-magnetism; Restricted principle of relativity and some consequences; Equivalence hypothesis; Four-dimensional continuum; etc.
This book examines the evolution of the principle of relativity in its classical, special, and general incarnations, with the aim of showing how it has repeatedly inspired advances in our understanding of the physical world.
