Digestible accounts of the life, work and influences of 75 founding pioneers of the Earth sciences, are arranged in chronological order from Nicholas Steno in the seventeenth century to the scientists of the twentieth century. This fascinating book will satisfy the appetite of the many readers curious about the work of familiar names, but about whom they know little more. The range of the book is across the sciences of both the solid and the fluid Earth, and in so doing it captures the key contributions of those who shaped the development of the earth sciences. Each entry of several thousand words, devoted to the pioneers, offers the perfect introduction to their work, life histories and personalities, providing a base from which more detailed treatments can be approached. In presenting the work of individuals, in their historical context, new perspectives are provided of both those that influenced each pioneer and those that they, in turn, influenced. Fully international in coverage, this is perfect leisure reading for geoscientists and many others concerned with the history of science.
