Product Description


'There are few volume[s] as comprehensive as this one - even fewer that embrace the whole history of astrophysics … Invaluable … A balance has been achieved between timeline history and highlighting key advances - the effect being that the reader has time for reflection and original thought. I expect no revised edition for at least ten years and hereby rename the book: Leverington's History of …' Ian Wellend, Astronomy Now

'The presentation of the material is logical; easy access to content is possible via a detailed table of contents, and indexes … Highly recommended. Especially valuable for lower-level undergraduates, upper-level graduates, and general readers.' J. M. Scaramozzino, Choice

'A great deal of solid research has gone into this volume, which offers a good, no-nonsense, factual reference on the history of astronomy. I recommend it particularly as a guide to modern space-based astronomy, on which Leverington has gathered much information that would be time-consuming to find elsewhere.' Lee MacDonald, Journal of the British Astronomical Association

'… a well-written volume. Recommended for libraries without comparable works or looking for a single volume on the history of astronomy and astrophysics.' Kevin McDonough, Reference Reviews

Book Description

Informative and accessibly written, this Encyclopedia offers a comprehensive guide to the history of astronomy and astrophysics. Each section offers extensive notes and bibliographies, while the consistent coverage, from ancient times to the present day, makes this an ideal resource for scholars, students and amateur astronomers.
