This advanced undergraduate text is a comprehensive and lucid introduction to galaxies for students in astronomy and physics. A careful combination of basic astrophysics, multiwavelength observations, and theoretical concepts help students develop a thorough, integrated understanding of the subject. Sparke and Gallagher provide all the necessary background astronomy and include only the necessary mathematics required to grasp the essence of a calculation or the basis for a method. They clearly explain observation and measurement techniques and critically review their limits and accuracy as well. The clear and friendly writing, thorough coverage of fundamentals, extensive up-to-date observations, and helpful problems make this an ideal student resource.
