Editorial Reviews


"Some of the most important current work and knowledge in a field of immense important and burgeoning knowledge and research . . . Essential reading for all planetary scientists and those concerned with planetary formation and evolution and general solar system studies. Very highly recommended." —Spaceflight"Asteroids was published in 1979 and Asteroids II in 1989, so do we need yet another huge volume on these insignificant little rocks just 13 years later? Has asteroid science really advanced so much in such a short time, and have we learned so much more about them that we did not know before? If you already have the first two volumes, do you need the third? Well, I'm afraid the answer to all of these questions is clear and unambiguous; it is yes!" —The Observatory
