520    "This book is about black holes, one of the most 
       intriguing objects of modern Theoretical Physics and 
       Astrophysics. For many years, black holes have been 
       considered as interesting solutions of the theory of 
       General Relativity with a number of amusing mathematical 
       properties. Now after the discovery of astrophysical black
       holes, the Einstein gravity has become an important tool 
       for their study. This self-contained textbook combines 
       physical, mathematical, and astrophysical aspects of black
       hole theory. Pedagogically presented, it contains 
       'standard' material on black holes as well as relatively 
       new subjects such as the role of hidden symmetries in 
       black hole physics, and black holes in spacetimes with 
       large extra dimensions. The book will appeal to students 
       and young scientists interested in the theory of black 
       holes"--|cProvided by publisher.
