TitleUnveiling galaxies: The Role of Images in Astronomical Discovery
Author(s)Jean-Rene Roy
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2018.
Descriptionxv, 278p.
Abstract NoteGalaxies are known as the building blocks of the universe, but arriving at this understanding has been a thousand-year odyssey. This journey is told through the lens of the evolving use of images as investigative tools. Initial chapters explore how early insights developed in line with new methods of scientific imaging, particularly photography. The volume then explores the impact of optical, radio and x-ray imaging techniques. The final part of the story discusses the importance of atlases of galaxies; how astronomers organised images in ways that educated, promoted ideas and pushed for new knowledge. Images that created confusion as well as advanced knowledge are included to demonstrate the challenges faced by astronomers and the long road to understanding galaxies. By examining developments in imaging, this text places the study of galaxies in its broader historical context, contributing to both astronomy and the history of science.

TitleRevealing the heart of the galaxy: The Milkey Way and Its Black Hole
Author(s)Robert H. Sanders
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014.
Descriptionix, 197p.
Abstract NoteWritten in an informal and engaging style, this volume traces the discoveries that led to our understanding of the size and structure of the Milky Way, and the conclusive evidence for a massive black hole at its center. Robert H. Sanders, an astronomer who witnessed many of these developments, describes how we parted the veil of interstellar dust to probe the strange phenomena within. We now know that the most luminous objects in the Universe - quasars and radio galaxies - are powered by massive black holes at their hearts. But how did black holes emerge from being a mathematical peculiarity, a theoretical consequence of Einstein's theory of gravity, to become part of the modern paradigm that explains active galactic nuclei and galaxy evolution in normal galaxies such as the Milky Way? This story, aimed at non-specialist readers and students and historians of astronomy, will both inform and entertain.

TitleGalaxies in turmoil: The Active and Starburst Galaxies and The Black holes that Drive them
Author(s)Chris Kitchin
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2007.
Descriptionxiii, 298p.
Abstract NoteWritten for amateur astronomers, school and college science students and for those with a more general interest in science, Galaxies in Turmoil provides a readable, non-mathematical account of one of the hottest areas of astronomical research. Galaxies in Turmoil is equally suitable for practical amateur astronomers, or as a text for college courses including galaxies, active galaxies, quasars, deep-space objects and large-scale astronomy, up to the final year of an astrophysics, physics or science degree.

TitleGalaxies in the Universe : An introduction
Author(s)Linda S. Sparke;John S. Gallagher III
Edition2nd. (Acc.#21584)
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2000.
DescriptionA#16795 - viii, 379p.; A#ix, 431p.
Contents NoteGalaxies are the places where gas turns into luminous stars, powered by nuclear reactions that also produce most of the chemical elements. but the gas and stars are only the tip of an iceberg; a galaxy consists mostly of dark matter, which we know only by the pull of its gravity. This book presents the astrophysics of galaxies since their beginnings in the early universe. The second edition is extensively illustrated with the most recent observational data. It includes sections on galaxy clusters. gamma ray bursts and supermassive black holes.
