Catastrophism: Asteroids, Comets and Other Dynamic Events in Earth History
by Richard Huggett
The book is about the PHILOSOPHY of catastrophism, not about “Asteroids, Comets, and other Dynamic Events in Earth History” as the subtitle implies. It is mostly about the currently outmoded theories of the influence of catastrophies on development of the Earth, and the people who espoused these views. No real data, not much currently constructive synthesis. But lots of good history and references if that is what you want. Mostly this book, 2nd edition is same of first edition.
