520    "Capturing the excitement and accomplishments of X-ray 
       astronomy, this second edition now includes a broader 
       range of astronomical phenomena and dramatic new results 
       from the most powerful X-ray telescopes. Covering all 
       areas of astronomical research, ranging from the smallest 
       to the largest objects, from neutron stars to clusters of 
       galaxies, this textbook is ideal for undergraduate 
       students. Each chapter starts with the basic aspects of 
       the topic, explores the history of discoveries, and 
       examines in detail modern observations and their 
       significance. This new edition has been updated with 
       results from the most recent space-based instruments, 
       including ROSAT, BeppoSAX, ASCA, Chandra, and XMM. New 
       chapters cover X-ray emission processes, the interstellar 
       medium, the Solar System, and gamma-ray bursts. The text 
       is supported by over 300 figures, with tables listing the 
       properties of the sources, and more specialized technical 
       points separated in boxes"--Provided by publisher.
