Pressestimmen

Review of the hardback: '... the strength of the book lies in the way it sets out the story of the rise of modern relativistic cosmology against the backdrop of the development of science as a whole. It succeeds in explaining how dramatic theoretical speculation is only a small part of the tale.' General Relativity and Gravitation
