A thought-provoking insight into the evolution of cosmology for undergraduate students and general readers, this book shows that the mystery of the origin of the universe is far from being solved. Cosmology has advanced over time through observational evidence as well as a lot of speculation. In this historical approach, the authors argue that the speculative element has become a dominant part of modern cosmology. They show how assumptions have been made and portrayed as confirmed facts. This unique book gives not only a critical assessment of the big bang theory, but presents a host of anomalous observations, and puts forward an alternative, controversial theory on the origin of the universe. A non-mathematical account, it contains analogies from everyday life so that readers can understand the concepts easily and follow the arguments presented.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a comprehensive romp through the basics of cosmology from ancient cosmologies via stellar evolution, nuclear synthesis and the observed expanding Universe to details of the standard Big Bang Theory.' The Observatory
'There is an excellent discussion of the Day of Brahma and other interesting stories. In short, [the authors] point out the way that current ideas in cosmology are modified is not too far from some of the perturbation seen in mythology. This is a rather thought-provoking book which is aimed at general readers who have an interest in the origin of the Universe.' Federation of Astronomical Societies Newsletter
