Encyclopedia of Earth and Physical Sciences

by Marshall Cavendish Corporation Staff (Contribution by)


Appropriate for middle school through highschool students, this reference comprises 13 slim, abundantly illustrated volumes, each measuring 9.25x12". About 40 entries in each volume (except the 13th, which has the index) are arranged alphabetically and range in length from a couple pages to six or seven pages; they encompass concepts, terms, people, and discipline overviews pertinent to the earth and physical sciences. The page design integrates color photos and boxed features of various types with narrative text, and each entry ends with cross-references and further reading suggestions. Each volume is separately indexed; the last contains a comprehensive index, a glossary and other supplementary material, and a subject- arranged bibliography.
