Riassunto: This top-selling historical geology text provides an excellent balance of basic geology and paleontology. THE EARTH THROUGH TIME provides rich, authoritative coverage of the history of the Earth, offering the most comprehensive history of the earth on the market today. It maintains its strong approach to stratigraphy and paleontology that others have lost, while updating new finds in areas of radiometric dating, stratigraphic nomenclature, and renewed ideas in paleontology (e.g., new discoveries of dinosaurs, mass extinctions, and current information found in the literature). The paleogeographic maps are excellent in detail and are a vital component in understanding the earth's history.


Through six best-selling editions, Harold Levin's THE EARTH THROUGH TIME has proven that studying the ancient world doesn't have to be a passive experience. Instead, the text encourages you to make the Earth's history your own and to get involved in the material. As our understanding of paleogeography grows and the feild advances, this text consistently keeps the pace. The new edition features updated and revised content as well as outstanding art and highly motivated pedagogy.

Highlight s of the Seventh Edition:

  • Balanced coverage of basic geology and paleontology. The Seventh Edition maintains its strong approach to stratigraphy and paleontology.
  • Expanded coverage of Hadean history, Precambrian glaciations, and microbial life in harsh environments, as well as cladistic interpretation of reptiles, additional information and illustrations of the origin of igneous rocks, and the historical significance of metamorphic facies.
  • Stunning artwork that brings the ancient world to life. In addition, the text is richly illustrated with geologic block diagrams, cross-sections, stratigraphic maps, paleogeographic maps, and phylogenetic trees.
  • Geology of National Parks boxes, including several that are new to this edition, provide further illustrations of concepts examined in the text.
  • New Enrichment boxes include the "Origin of the Universe," "Geosynclinal Hypothesis Displaced by Plate Tectonics," and "Can We Bring Back the Dinosaurs?"
  • A Comprehensive Web Site
    (<), including hot links, new items, chapter notes, quizzes, links to study aids, writing tips, reference materials, a glossary, career services, and more.
