Building on a long tradition of strong pedagogy and comprehensive presentation, The Cosmic Perspective: The Solar System, Fifth Edition includes an enhanced art program. This student-friendly book is now even more accessible through robust visual pedagogy via new Cosmic Context two-page figures, which walk readers through key processes and summarize the major points of each Part, and via updated zoom-in figures which provide students with a sense of orientation, scale, and relation between images. Renowned for its up-to-date, expert coverage and strong pedagogical support for student learning, the Fifth Edition retains and builds on all the features and supplements from previous editions that have helped to make it the #1 most adopted astronomy book. ** Because these are splits, there is an intentional gap in page numbers.
