This book is based on two lectures given in Cambridge by Professor Chandrasckhar to mark the centenary of the birth of Arthur Stanley Eddington. The text describes Eddington's major contributions to astrophysics and to general relativity. The approach is not technical, although it will mainly be of interest to professionals in astronomy, applied mathematics and the history of modern astronomy.
