About this book

Hodge takes us on a spectacular journey, inviting us to probe the exquisite structures and dynamics of the giant spiral and elliptical galaxies, to witness colliding and erupting galaxies, and to pay our respects to the most powerful galaxies of all - the quasers. A basic guide to the latest news from the cosmic frontier - about the black holes in the centers of galaxies, about the way in which some galaxies cannibalize each other, about the vast distances between galaxies, and about the remarkable new evidence regarding dark energy and the cosmic expansion - this book gives us a firm foundation for exploring the more speculative fringes of our current understanding.

Media reviews
Some galaxies erupt in starbursts; most contain giant black holes at their cores, each containing several million or billion times as much mass as our sun. William Waller and Paul Hodge give us a magisterial tour of these galaxies and their environment in space.--Jay Pasachoff"Times Higher Education Supplement" (03/12/2004)
