From School Library Journal: Grade 6-8-This methodical biography places the astronomer within the turbulent political and religious events of his times and the concurrent intellectual riptides that marked the shift from medieval to modern science. Raised by a wealthy uncle, Copernicus studied at several universities before taking up duties as a church official in a disputed Polish province; he became a capable administrator, ultimately charged with overseeing the area's recovery after a devastating war. However, he was also developing, and very cautiously promoting, revolutionary (so to speak) ideas about the relationship between Earth and its sun-impelled, argues the author, not so much by his own observations as by the conviction that the Ptolemaic model of the universe conflicted with Aristotelian principles. Though Goble's sometimes-technical account of Copernicus's theory needs a few more diagrams to achieve total clarity, numerous contemporary portraits and other art give this study strong visual appeal, while an array of side essays, print resources, and Web sites enhances its scope. Catherine M. Andronik's Copernicus: Founder of Modern Astronomy (Enslow, 2002) includes hands-on demonstrations, but is less detailed; consider this a companion to William J. Boerst's Tycho Brahe: Mapping the Heavens (Morgan Reynolds, 2003) for serious students of the Renaissance, the Protestant Reformation, and the history of scientific ideas.
