Note
Whether it is true or not that not more than twelve persons in all theworld are able to understand Einstein's Theory, it is nevertheless a factthat there is a constant demand for information about this much-debatedtopic of relativity. The books published on the subject are so technicalthat only a person trained in pure physics and higher mathematics isable to fully understand them. In order to make a popular explanation of this far-reaching theory available, the present book is published.Professor Lorentz is credited by Einstein with sharing the develop-ment of his theory. He is doubtless better able than any otherman—except the author himself—to explain this scientific discovery.The publishers wish to acknowledge their indebtedness to the NewYork
Times,TheReviewofReviews
and
TheAthenaeum
for courteous per-mission to reprint articles from their pages. Professor Lorentz's articleappeared originally in
TheNieuweRotterdamscheCourant
of November19, 1919.
