PERSPECTIVES ON ASTRONOMY features the same engaging writing style and logical conceptual presentation that has become a hallmark of Mike Seeds's introductory astronomy texts, but in a slimmer and more affordable alternative for instructors looking for a text that truly focuses on the core concepts. Seeds and new co-author Dana Backman personalize the history of the universe by placing students at the center of the latest chapter in a grand and amazing story-how we are the latest link in the great chain of origins. The authors also emphasize the role of the scientific process throughout the text, helping students understand how analyzing scientific evidence not only answers the question How Do We Know? but also provides deeper insights into our place in the universe as well. New copies of PERSPECTIVES ON ASTRONOMY include access to CengageNOW, an online diagnostic resource and personalized learning system for students. Access is also included for Virtual Astronomy Labs, a collection of twenty interactive online exercises that cover the main concepts in introductory astronomy.
