A history of the role of politics in the adoption of Heliocentrism in Early Modern Europe
This book explores the relationship between the sciences and both local and international politics.
Reading this book will take you through the 15th and 16th centuries, exploring what was happening on the world stage between Copernicus and Newton and how that affected how astronomy was conducted.
The actual events, key players, and their views show a very complex and intriguing development of astronomy that didn't lead to an immediate uptake of Heliocentrism, albeit also resulting in an uptake that was premature.
