An inspiring collection of the great thinker’s views on a rapidly changing world

Nuclear proliferation, Zionism, and the global economy are just a few of the insightful and surprisingly prescient topics scientist Albert Einstein discusses in this volume of collected essays from between 1931 and 1950. Written with a clear voice and a thoughtful perspective on the effects of science, economics, and politics in daily life, Einstein’s essays provide an intriguing view inside the mind of a genius addressing the philosophical challenges presented during the turbulence of the Great Depression, the Second World War, and the dawn of the Cold War.

This authorized ebook features rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

And all of this to wide attention and substantial acclaim (D’Agata is the director of the Nonfiction Writing Program at the University of Iowa, the most prestigious name in creative writin

Helping My First Generation Students Take Pride in their Personal Essays

As college acceptances and rejections begin to come in for the students I tutor, I’ve started to reflect on how very fraught with meaning their application essays can be. These young adults are facing the first of many acts of seeing themselves—acts that are critical for us writers. Beyond proving basic writing ability, these brief items of self-disclosure ask students to address a deeper meaning in their lives. The “meaning” of my own life has much to do with the English language and my independent acquisition of it. My parents are immigrants; when they first came to this country, they had t

A Graphic Novel About 17th-Century Philosophy

Dark spots across the sun, men burned at the stake, an all-powerful church that brooks no idea outside its dogma—there is no subject so imbued with drama, intrigue, and fast-paced action as 17th-century Western philosophy. And thus no medium does it justice like the graphic novel. No, really. Heretics!, a graphic novel by Steven and Ben Nadler, introduces readers to what is arguably the most interesting, important, and consequential period in the history of Western philosophy. While respecting recent scholarship on 17th-century thought, the Nadlers sought to make these stories and ideas as ac
