From the Publisher"The first graduate-level textbook devoted to star formation, thiswork fills a glaring gap. It covers all relevant areas of currentresearch in this vital area of astronomy. While the emphasis is ontheory, observations are also treated in a thorough and lucidmanner."
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 inmodern astronomy. Deciphering how stars form is fundamental to ourunderstanding of the universe. This well written and illustratedtext treats star formation comprehensively, utilising the latest observations andtheoretical insights, at a level that is appropriate for a physicsmajor. It serves a unique role, in assembling and reviewing areservoir of knowledge that can only be found in academic journals, and providesa masterly overview of an important field."
