About this book

This book is the first to provide students and researchers in the field of astrophysical jets with a comprehensive and up-to-date account of current research. An important feature of the book is that it combines discussions of both extragalactic and Galactic jets. There are ten chapters, authored by fourteen active researchers, each of whom is an expert on their chosen topic, and the book has been edited to provide a cohesive account of this field of study. This is the first volume to integrate studies of jets on all length scales. It will be an important textbook for graduate students, and a valuable reference source for researchers in many areas of extragalactic and Galactic astronomy. It will also be of interest to plasma physicists and space scientists.

...the evenness of the book's level and tone is a tribute to Philip Hughes's editorial skills. Although the book seems to be aimed at the practicing astrophysicist who wishes to get up to speed on the subject of jets, the treatment of technical issues is sufficiently discursive that the book could be used as a graduate text.
