This new edition is a major revision as rapid progress has been made in all branches of astronomy since the publication of the second edition. The far-reaching results of radio-astronomical observations are described in relation to the knowledge derived optically, and also in relation to the developments in other observational methods, particularly in X-rays and the vistas opened by space exploration and space-borne observatories. Many topical subjects receive special attention including the varied types of stellar activities and the role of the binary systems. Supernovae, pulsars, interstellar molecules and masers, black holes, tests of Einstein's theory of relativity, and cosmology are fully discussed. The book is eminently suitable as a basis for courses of lectures at sixth form or advanced education colleges, adult education courses, and for undergraduate training in astronomy.
