The space and time introduced by Albert Einstein is explained by examining a series of simple thought or 'gedanken' experiments. The development makes extensive use of spacetime diagrams to help readers appreciate the full extent of these changes.

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 and the principle of least action is discussed.
