Astronomy in American Textbooks

Jay M. Pasachoff
1990 International Astronomical Union Colloquium  
Over the last dozen years, I have written textbooks on a variety of levels, starting with books for university students, proceeding to work with Naomi Pasachoff on books on the junior-high level, and, most recently, working with her and with others on an elementary-school series. I can testify that, in the United States, at least, the world of college and university texts is as different from the world of "el-hi" (elementary-high) texts as night is from day.
