Abstract

In this reviewer's opinion this is the most important contribution to lunar science that has yet appeared. It transcends lunar science and is essential reading for all students of the early solar history, the planets, and the Earth. Formally, it is a presentation of the results of a Conference on the Origin of the Moon, held in Kona, Hawaii, in October 1984. However, because of the care of the editors, reviewers, and authors it is not your standard conference proceedings volume. It is a complete reference book on the Moon as a planetary object. It is also a valuable source book for science historians and philosophers.
