Geography is a flourishing and diverse subject, drawing on a range from geology to the social sciences. Small and Witherick's highly successful Dictionary has already in its first two editions proved its value as a comprehensive guide to, and in many instances explanation and illustration of, the principles, concepts, and terminology of geography in the 1990s. This new enlarged edition reflects advances in the discipline in recent years. Many new entries have been added, a significant proportion of which relate to the critical interface between human and physical considerations. Existing entries have been revised and updated and the dictionary now includes over 2000 terms widely used by modern geographers. It provides a detailed definition and explanation of and has an extensive cross-referencing system which enables the reader easily to identiiy associated terms.

E = mc2 ist die berühmteste Formel der Welt. Mit ihr brachte Einstein es auf den Punkt: Energie und Masse sind zwei Seiten derselben Medaille und die Lichtgeschwindigkeit c ist ihr Wechselkurs. Doch warum besteht dieses so einfache Verhältnis? Wie ist Albert Einstein zu diesem Schluss gekommen? Und welche Folgen für das Verständnis des Universums ergeben sich daraus? Brian Cox, Professor für Physik und in England durch seine Sendungen auf BBC sehr bekannt, hat sich zusammen mit seinem Kollegen Jeff Forshaw, Professor für theoretische Physik, die scheinbar einfache Einstein-Gleichung vorgenommen, um sie mit viel Energie ausführlich und verständlich zu erklären.
