Here is the book that establishes the revolution in dinosaur science that has occurred in our generation. Dinosaurs are no longer thought of as lizards so much as birds. The transformation can be seen from the first Jurassic Park movie to the recent econstructions in the BBC series Walking with Dinosaurs in America where they appear as warm blooded and feathered, attending their young and brooding their nests. This transformation in popular culture is based on excavations at one profoundly important site in China- Liaoning. Here, told by the leading US researcher who has been to the site, Mark Norrell, the Chair and Curator, Division of Paleontology, American Museum of Natural History, is the definitive story of that discovery.

Unearthing The Dragon is also a highly personalized account of being in a foreign land with a very different history of science, culture, and everyday social behavior
