For a CS2 course, this text uses a truly object-oriented approach to concentrate on teaching data structures rather than C++ language features. Each major data structure is introduced with a corresponding collection class. This streamlined approach allow the authors to cover advanced topics such as templates, graphs, searching, sorting, dictionaries, and files. Excellent case studies also included.

This long-awaited second edition of Data Structures with C++ Using STL, by Professors Ford and Topp, provides a modern object-oriented approach to data structures using the model of the Standard Template Library (STL). The authors unify the study of data structures around the concepts of containers and iterators. The book skillfully develops algorithms for the data structures and their applications. Readers will find a systematic and detailed implementation for each data structure. These successful authors offer a learning tool that is motivated by a wealth of excellent examples and complete running programs.
Professor William Ford and Professor William Topp are faculty members with the Computer Science Department, University of the Pacific, Stockton, California. They have also written Introduction to Computing with C++ and Object Technology (Prentice Hall, 1999) and Assembly Language and Systems Programming for the M68000 Family (Jones and Bartlett, 1992).
