Title  Special relativity: From Einstein to strings 
Author(s)  Patricia M. Schwarz;John H. Schwarz 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2004. 
Contents Note  The book is about special theory of relativity. This theory overthrew the classical view of space and time as distinct and absolute entities that provide the backdrop on which physical reality is superimposed. In special relativity space and time must be viewed together (as spacetime) to make sense of the constancy of the speed of light and the structure of Maxwell's electromagnetic theory. The book is divided into two parts  entitled 'Fundamentals' and 'Advanced Topics'. The first part gives a detailed explanation of special relativity. The second part of the book includes advanced topics that illustrate how relativity has impacted subsequent developments in theoretical physics upto and including modern work on superstring theory.
