**Description**:

Classic introduction to Einstein's theory, written by a prominent physicist, provides the two main postulates upon which the theory rests and their experimental evidence. The relation between relativity theory and the principle of least action is discussed, as is a four-dimensional method of expressing and treating the results of relativity theory.
