Overview

Steve Stanley was the first author to write an historical geology textbook with whole-earth approach to the subject. It remains the only textbook for the course written from a truly integrated earth systems perspective.

Now in its Third Edition, Earth System History has three powerful reasons to remain the
leading textbook in this market: unmatched currency; proven student pedagogy; and a new interactive online study center.
