The southern hemisphere is undergoing a phase of intense "activity." On one hand, a number of exciting new facilities (ranging from optical and near-infrared to radio and 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 and make coordinated radio, infrared and optical projects in the southern hemisphere ever more attractive and significant. With all these new facilities, important progress will be made regarding large-scale structure of the universe, the very early universe and 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.
