The southern hemisphere is undergoing a phase of intense "activity". On one hand, a number of exciting new facilities (ranging from optical & near-infrared to radio & millimeter) are, or will soon be, available. On the other hand, many new deep surveys, covering most of the electromagnetic spectrum, are underway. This will provide large databases & make coordinated radio, infrared & optical projects in the southern hemisphere ever more attractive & significant. With all these new facilities, important progress will be made regarding large-scale structure of the universe, the very early universe & the associated first epoch of galaxy formation. This book presents a collection of papers presented by experts in these fields at a workshop designed to address how southern hemisphere astronomy could best coordinate its efforts to maximise the use of the new generation of 8-10 telescopes in studying the key questions in these fields. It is aimed at research astronomers.
