Time Machines: Time Travel in Physics, Metaphysics, and Science Fiction by Paul J. Nahin

Explores the ideas of time travel from the first account in English literature in 1733 to the latest theories of physicists such as Kip Thorne and Igor Novikov. Topics include the history of time travel in fiction; the fundamental concepts of time, spacetime, and the fourth dimension; the speculations of Einstein, Richard Feynman, Kurt Godel, and others; scientific hypotheses about the direction of time, reversed time, and multidimensional time; and time-travel paradoxes. Decipherable to readers without physics background (all the nasty equations are hidden in the appendices). Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
