Editorial Reviews


`Review from previous edition This book maintains a high level of clarity throughout, and is written with admirable patience. It will be found very useful by a beginning researcher in quantum gravity who wants to have a comprehensive overview of the subject. Equally well, senior researchers in the field will find it a handy reference for standard analyses of various aspects of the subject.' General Relativity and Gravitation

`... a clear exposition of the fundamental concepts of gravity... an extensive review of the subject.' Journal of Classical and Quantum Gravity

`... suitable for the expert who wants an overview of the state-of-the-art, as well as the novice looking for an introduction to one of the most spellbinding subjects in theoretical physics today.' Physik-Journal
