Book Description Little, Brown Book Group. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, A Brief History of the Universe: From Ancient Babylon to the Big Bang, J.P. McEvoy, Since the dawn of humanity, men have attempted to divine the nature of the heavens. The first astronomers mapped the movement of the seasons and used the positions of the constellations for augurs and astrology.

McEvoy tells the story of how our knowledge of the cosmos has developed. He puts in context many of the greatest discoveries of all time and many of the dominant personalities: Aristotle, Copernicus, and Isaac Newton, and as we approach the modern era, Einstein, Eddington, and Hawking.
