Very Good. 052142352X Narlikar, J.V. Introduction to Cosmology. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 1993. xvi, 415pp. Indexed. Illustrated. Bibliography. Square 8vo. Paperback. Book condition: Very good. Light rubbing to edges.
I haven´t finished reading this book, and yet, I think I can say something about it. First of all, this is more like a textbook and often heavy going compared to Narlikar´s earlier book "The structure of the universe" . However, it is an eye-opener for those of us who are interested in cosmology and are sceptical about the Big Bang, unfortunately at the moment the only hypothesis accepted by the majority. Narlikar´s book starts off well, with an overview on the cosmos and the universe and its objects, and also discusses the Theory of Relativity. The interesting aspects are doubts about the red shift and the microwave background that are not adequately explained by the Big Bang.Well worth a read.In my view, an excellent alternative to standard and established opinions.
