About this book
Going beyond the discoveries of contemporary science, this is a wide-ranging and unusual survey of the moon's mythical, religious and cultural significance. Brunner's ingenious and interdisciplinary explorations shed new light on this familiar object.
Offers a perspective on such age-old questions as 'What would Earth be like without the moon?' Drawing on materials from different cultures and epochs, the author walks readers down a moonlit path illuminated by more than seventy-five vintage photographs and illustrations.
