About this book

Critical account of the rise and general acceptance of Luis Alvarez's theory that the dinosaurs were wiped out by the impact of a giant meteorite. The authors argue that there is substantial evidence that a meteor could not have been responsible, and present their own theory as to the why these great reptiles became extinct.
