Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“There is much to admire in this volume and it is impossible to read it without learning a great deal. It is well edited with good cross-referencing, making clear the connections between the chapters. This is an important and welcome book that is likely to define the field for many years to come.”  (Journal of the Royal Astronomical Institute, 1 May 2013)
