Here is a new edition of a widely acclaimed account of the great historical controversies in geology—a book that covers many of the most important ideas that have emerged since the birth of the subject. This edition includes a new chapter on the emergence of stratigraphy in the nineteenth focusing on controversies surrounding the Cambrian-Silurian and Devonian. Another new chapter reviews the mass extinction theory, which is still under heated debate. Other chapters have been revised to reflect recent developments and changes in the field.
