From Library Journal:

Beginning with humankind's earliest views of the cosmos recorded in Egypt, Babylon, and Greece, and evi dence from megalithic sites such as Stonehenge, Trefil quickly traces the rise of Western astronomy to contem porary views of stars, galaxies, and in finity. Issues of cosmology, astrophys ics, and cosmogony are treated lucidly and richly illustrated with hundreds of colored pictures and diagrams. Impor tant unsolved scientific problems are explored, as well as questions such as the existence of extraterrestrial life. Completely up-to-date scientifically, this book tells a story of immense scope. Highly recommended for lay people and a beautiful addition to pub lic libraries. E.
