Description: This volume contains new publications of A. S. Eddington's famous book Space, Time and Gravitation: An Outline of the General Relativity Theory, written for a wider audience, and two short pieces originally published in Nature - an article on time (The Relativity of Time) and a Letter to the Editor on space ("Space" or "Aether"?). The short Nature publications are included in the volume because they shed additional (and still important today) light on some aspects of the (then) new views of space, time and gravitation.

In 1921 in a review in the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society Edwin Bidwell Wilson wrote that Eddington's book "is undoubtedly the best general presentation" of general relativity. Today it is still one of the best general presentations because it is written not only by a skilled popularizer of science but also by one of the three (as the legend has it) experts on general relativity at that time.
