About the Book

Written in simple and accessible language, this non-technical introduction to cosmology, or the creation and development of the universe, explains the discipline, covers its history, details the latest developments, and explains what is known, what is believed, and what is purely speculative. In addition, the author discusses the development of the Big Bang theory, and more speculative modern issues like quantum cosmology, superstrings, and dark matter.

About the Series: Combining authority with wit, accessibility, and style, Very Short Introductions offer an introduction to some of life's most interesting topics. Written by experts for the newcomer, they demonstrate the finest contemporary thinking about the central problems and issues in hundreds of key topics, from philosophy to Freud, quantum theory to Islam.

About the Author:
Peter Coles is Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Nottingham and author of Einstein and the Birth of Big Science and Stephen Hawking and the Mind of God. He has co-written two textbooks on cosmology, and over a hundred technical articles on various aspects of the Big Bang theory.
