New Windows to the Universe: XIth European Meeting of the International Astronomical Union by F. Sanchez

New windows to the universe presents a timely and stimulating exposition of six major areas in astrophysics. Volume one contains the sun and solar like stars, stellar structure and evolution, and, astronomical instrumentation. Volume two contains structure and evolution of galaxies, active galaxies and cosmology, and a section on interstellar and intergalactic medium. Scientists from all over the world met in Tenerife to give their perspective on their area of expertise. The resulting volumes will be of lasting value to the astrophysical community.
