|More about this book|
This list of recent titles begins with the first volumes of my seven-book series called Discovering the Earth. These books represent a slight departure from my usual subjects. True, they are about environmental science, but this time I discuss not so much what scientists know about the world around us as how they acquired that knowledge. The books are about the history of the environmental sciences.
The list also includes my eight-book series on Dangerous Weather. Fog, Smog, and Poisoned Rain and A Change in the Weather are new. The others are fully revised editions of earlier, very successful titles.
The Facts On File Handbook of Weather and Climate contains masses of basic information about atmospheric science, its history, major weather disasters, famous scientists, and more. The two-volume Encyclopedia of Weather and Climate covers the same material, but in much greater depth and detail.
My Oxford Paperback Reference books are four dictionaries, on Earth Sciences, Zoology, Plant Sciences, and Ecology. All four are kept up to date with new editions and all four are available on-line.But this is only a short selection from the many books I have written. Why not look at them in more detail, then browse through the full list? I’m sure you will find something that appeals to you.
