The success of the recent Spitzer and Herschel satellites in extending sensitive observations to the medium- and long-wavelength regions of the infrared has led to many new observations of star-forming regions. Coupling these with the high-resolution millimeter-wave mapping to be expected from the ALMA array telescope in Chile, the field is bound to experience explosive growth in the near future. This book by Ward-Thompson and Whitworth has thus appeared at a very opportune moment.
