A remarkable figure in the world of astronomical sciences, Stephen W. Hawking here delivers a stunning history of the universe that transcends the accepted boundaries of inquiry and discovery of modern science. The result is a deeply mind and heart searching book, that presents the reader with the elementary yet rarely-explored questions: Was there a beginning of time? Will there be an end? Is the universe infinite? Or does it have boundaries? An infinite mind set on an infinite subject to deal with questions just as infinite.

Illustrated with B&W digital drawings and diagrams. Features an introduction by Carl Sagan. Includes a glossary of scientific terms.
