WORLD UNIVERSITY LIBRARY (WEIDENFELD AND NICHOLSON)
Series Note: "The World University Library is an international series of books, each which has been specially commissioned. The authors are leading scientists and scholars from all over the world who, in an age of increasing specialisation, see the need for a broad, up-to-date presentation of their subject. The aim is to provide authoritative introductory books for students which will be of interest also to the general reader. The series is published in Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the United States.
'There is an urgent and growing need for books which will present in not too technical a way the latest results of modern scholarship and science. But these books must be the work of first-class specialists who can speak with real authority. The World University Library aims at doing this and promises books which will appeal to every kind of learner.'
-- Sir Maurice Bowra
