About the Author:

Gregory A. Good is Associate Professor in the History Department at West Virginia University.

From Library Journal:

Unlike the Encyclopedia of Earth Science (LJ 10/15/96), which provides information explaining currently accepted facts and theories, this work is a survey of the history of geosciences that shows the evolution of ideas about the earth. Covering a wide range of disciplines (geology, geography, geophysics, oceanography, meteorology, etc.), the 230-plus articles describe historical explanations of earthly occurrences, important institutions, major historical issues, and even topics that do not fall within mainstream science such as occult philosophy and magic. The emphasis is on Western science, although some other cultures are represented. Biographical articles were purposely omitted, so a name index that lists almost all the individuals mentioned is included. The articles are well written and understandable to the non-expert, and each has a bibliography to help the reader find more information. There is also a section discussing other useful resources for research in the history of geosciences. A subject index and a listing of entries by broad categories help the user locate the desired information. Overall, this is a very interesting set for those interested in the history of sciences.
