Jones and Bartlett Publishers is pleased to announce the acquisition of In Quest of the Universe, Second Edition by Karl Kuhn, formerly available from West Publishing Company. As an introductory text, In Quest of the Universe not only introduces students to astronomy; it also launches them into the world of science. Through this text students come to understand the unique insight on the universe that astronomy provides while also learning what science is, what scientists mean when they refer to a theory, how theories are tested and developed, and what motivates scientists. Students benefit from the solar system-to-stars-to-galaxies approach employed by the text as it allows them to begin with the more familiar and move on to the less familiar concepts. The second edition includes more information on stars and cosmology, galaxies, and many additional photographs.
