Traduzione di Lucio Angelini Edizione integrale Albert Einstein non appartiene a quel gruppo di studiosi che si chiudono nella «torre d’avorio» del loro lavoro di ricerca, immemori del mondo che li circonda. Al contrario, è sempre stato un osservatore acuto e critico delle tendenze e dei problemi del suo tempo. In questo senso, i discorsi, gli articoli, le lettere e gli appelli raccolti in questo volume rispecchiano non solo le posizioni scientifiche e filosofiche dell’autore, ma anche gli atteggiamenti politico-sociali. Un documento straordinario che ci restituisce nella sua interezza e profondità il pensiero di uno dei più grandi scienziati del nostro tempo. Albert Einsteinnacque a Ulm, in Germania, nel 1879. Fu direttore dell’Istituto Kaiser Wilhelm di Berlino fino al 1933, anno in cui fu costretto dai nazisti a lasciare la Germania. Si trasferì negli Stati Uniti, dove insegnò nell’Università di Princeton. Nel 1916 enunciò la sua teoria della relatività generale che rivoluzionò i concetti di spazio e tempo. Nel 1921 ricevette il premio Nobel per le sue ricerche sull’effetto fotoelettrico. Morì a Princeton il 18 aprile 1955. Di Albert Einstein la Newton Compton ha pubblicato Come io vedo il mondo - La teoria della relatività, Pensieri, idee e opinioni, Il significato della relatività e Il mondo come io lo vedo.

Einstein is the great icon of our age: the kindly refugee from oppression whose wild halo of hair, twinkling eyes, engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius. He was a rebel and nonconformist from boyhood days. His character, creativity and imagination were related, and they drove both his life and his science. In this marvellously clear and accessible narrative, Walter Isaacson explains how his mind worked and the mysteries of the universe that he discovered. Einstein's success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marvelling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a worldview based on respect for free spirits and free individuals. All of which helped make Einstein into a rebel but with a reverence for the harmony of nature, one with just the right blend of imagination and wisdom to transform our understanding of the universe. This new biography, the first since all of Einstein's papers have become available, is the fullest picture yet of one of the key figures of the twentieth century.

Twenty years ago Chelsea Green published the first trade edition of The Man Who Planted Trees, a timeless eco-fable about what one person can do to restore the earth. The hero of the story, Elzéard Bouffier, spent his life planting one hundred acorns a day in a desolate, barren section of Provence in the south of France. The result was a total transformation of the landscape-from one devoid of life, with miserable, contentious inhabitants, to one filled with the scent of flowers, the songs of birds, and fresh, flowing water. Since our first publication, the book has sold over a quarter of a million copies and inspired countless numbers of people around the world to take action and plant trees. On National Arbor Day, April 29, 2005, Chelsea Green released a special twentieth anniversary edition with a new foreword by Wangari Maathai, winner of the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize and founder of the African Green Belt Movement.
