From the Publisher"The first graduate-level textbook devoted to star formation, this work fills a glaring gap. It covers all relevant areas of current research in this vital area of astronomy. While the emphasis is on theory, observations are also treated in a thorough and lucid manner."
Dr. Karl M. Menten
Director, Max-Planck-Institute for Radioastronomy and Professor for Experimental Astrophysics,
"This is a timely treatment of one of the forefront issues in modern astronomy. Deciphering how stars form is fundamental to our understanding of the universe. This well written and illustrated text treats star formation comprehensively, utilising the latest observations and theoretical insights, at a level that is appropriate for a physics major. It serves a unique role, in assembling and reviewing a reservoir of knowledge that can only be found in academic journals, and provides a masterly overview of an important field."
Joseph Silk, Savilian Professor of Astronomy, Oxford University
