From the Publisher:

Noted author Jeremy Bernstein explores the physics of cosmology without focusing on the full machinery of general relativity.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit:In three decades, cosmology has transformed itself from a data-poor theoretical discipline to the most exciting crossroads of particle physics and astronomy. In this rigorously complete and wonderfully readable book, you'll learn how cosmology has come this far -- and understand the subject's theoretical and observational foundations.Key Topics: Start with Einstein's classic 1917 paper, Cosmological Considerations -- and what he called his biggest blunder, the cosmological constant. Understand how Hubble's experimental observations -- backed by the neglected contributions of Friedmann and others -- first demonstrated that the universe expands. Take stock of the universe: its size, contents and behavior as we now understand them. Then visit the most exciting frontiers of cosmology, including mysteries like: what is the dark matter that makes up most of the universe? How did the universe's recently discovered cosmic structure evolve?Market: For scientists, students and educated readers interested in the science of cosmology and the nature of the universe.
