Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory
by Arthur Stanley Eddington
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1920
Number of pages: 219
The author gives an account of general relativity theory without introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics, or philosophy. Although primarily designed for readers without technical knowledge of the subject, it is hoped that the book may also appeal to those who have gone into the subject more deeply.

Starting from Newton's gravitational theory, we give a general introduction into the spherically symmetric solution of Einstein's vacuum field equation, the Schwarzschild solution, and into one specific stationary solution, the Kerr solution.

The status of experimental tests of general relativity and of theoretical frameworks for analyzing them are reviewed and updated. Tests of general relativity have reached high precision, including the light deflection, the Shapiro time delay, etc.

This is an undergraduate textbook on general relativity. It is well adapted for self-study, and answers are given in the back of the book for almost all the problems. The ratio of conceptual to mathematical problems is higher than in most books.

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.
