Text: None required, however there will be numerous readings from Understanding the Earth: A New Synthesis. Unfortunately this book is out-of-print, so appropriate readings will be xeroxed and placed in a bin in the reading room (PS 204A). Copies of other assigned readings will also be placed in this bin.
