Written for students of geology, this text incorporates advances in earth science such as plate tectonics, global warming, and the interconnectivity between the history of Earth and the history of life. It begins with a brief discussion of cosmology and the world's origin. The "Instructor's Manual" is designed to assist instructors in preparing lectures. The content includes: detailed learning objectives, reference to the relevant Web sites and complete answers to the end-of-chapter questions.
