Review:

"An excellent introduction to the philosophies of space and time. Foundations of Space-Time Theories is the result of the author's intellectual struggle to clarify the foundations of relativity theory for himself, and it will deeply influence all future thinking
about the philosophy of space and time."--The New York Times Book Review
