Most historians of astronomy devote themselves to planetary theory. In the hope of encouraging the history of stellar astronomy, Dr Hoskin has brought together studies published over the years in a variety of places, along with material appearing here for the first time.
Michael Hoskin is Past President of the History of Astronomy Commission of the International Astronomical Union, and editor of Journal for the History of Astronomy.
"... possibly the most comprehensive and definitive treatise extant on the extraordinarily important subject of the history of stellar astronomy ... superb ..." - Richard Berendzen
