Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0852195982, Hardcover)

Forces and Movement looks at the different forces from gravity to friction and the effects they have on objects and their movement. The Earth and Space explores how the Earth moves around the Sun and its position in space as a whole. Both books consider how the ancient Greeks explained these phenomena and why the work of people like Newton and Galileo led their ideas to be reinterpreted.
