Virtually all the new relevant data are presented, including those from the current space-borne observatories like the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE), the Rontgen Satellit (Rosat), and the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO). Between two introductory overviews and two summary overviews are technical papers on topics in galactic center, bulge/bar, local environment, infrared emission, interstellar medium, dynamics, energetic particles and fields, outer galaxy, disk/halo, and dark matter.
