Michael Hoskin con The Cambridge Concise History of Astronomy
Astronomy is one of the oldest sciences, and one which has repeatedly led to fundamental changes in our view of the world and the sciences. This book covers the history of the subject from prehistory through to a survey of modern astronomy (sure to be of interest to future historians!). It does not attempt to cover everything, instead giving extended treatment to the important topics in the history of Western astronomy. This book is an essential text for students of the history of science, and excellent historical background for students of astronomy.
