About this book

Only a century ago Europe had a huge number of local time zones and no proper system of coordinating them. This study explores the stories of two men who revolutionized time as we know it: Henri Poincare and Albert Einstein.

Galison provides a unique and enlightening view on the origin of time as we know it in the modern age.
