Einstein's Wife: The Real Story Of Mileva Einstein-Marić

Author(s): Allen Esterson, David C. Cassidy, Ruth Lewin Sime
Albert Einstein's first wife, Mileva Einstein-Marić, was forgotten for decades. This book uncovers the real “Mileva Story.” Mileva was one of the few women of her era to pursue higher education in science; she and Einstein were students together in Zurich. Her ambitions for a science career suffered setbacks--failed diploma examinations, a disagreement with her doctoral dissertation adviser, an out-of-wedlock pregnancy by Einstein. She and Einstein married in 1903 and had two sons, but the marriage failed. The story told here is that of a brave and determined young woman who struggled against a variety of obstacles at a time when science was not very welcoming to women.
