Ranging acrossMorePresenting digestible accounts of 75 founding pioneers, from Agassiz to Zirkel, this fascinating book will satisfy the appetite of the many readers curious about those whose names are so familiar, but about whom they know little more. Ranging across the sciences of both the solid and the fluid Earth, the book captures the key contributions to the development of the sciences from the seventeenth century up to the end of the twentieth century.

The several thousand words devoted to each pioneer offer the perfect introduction to their work, life histories and personalities, providing a base from which more detailed monographical treatments can be approached. Fully international in coverage, this is perfect leisure reading for all geoscientists and many others.
