Helge S. Kragh, historian of science and prolific author of books (and a member of the editorial board of this journal), has given us nothing less than a thorough history of cosmology, from biblical myths to the present view of accelerated expansion. It’s a noble thing to try, and even if it isn’t always perfectly accurate, Conceptions of Cosmos makes a real contribution to the literature.
