Bulletin of the Institute of Physics and Physical Society, V18, pp. 71-77 (Mar 1967). What is Wrong With Relativity? provided the inspiration for many dissidents since its publication over 40 years ago. Brown begins by observing that Einstein produced no definitive account of his theory and that his original presentation contained contradictions. He then argues that the two postulates of Special Relativity are (1) a law about laws, and (2) an algebraic representation of what is, or could be, a fact. Citing the work of Herbert Ives, Percy Bridgman, Vladimir Fock, Louis Essen, and others, Brown summarizes the case against Einsteinian relativity as it stood in 1967. His arguments have yet to receive an answer.
