Although Einstein is widely credited with abolishing the ether concept, he actually introduced a new relativistic ether in 1916, developing the idea in his later works. This book tells the story of Einstein and the rebirth of the ether. The author recounts how Einstein came to reject the 19th century ether, and describes the three relativistic ether models developed by Einstein after he introduced general relativity. Finally, it describes Einstein?s treatment of spacetime as a material entity?a ?new ether?.
