In this excellent atlas, Glen Mackie of Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, has collected images of familiar and less familiar galaxies at various wavelengths and comparable scales, showing how key features of galactic form and evolution are picked out in cool dust, hot gas and spectral.

Behold, a photograph of our home galaxy, the Milky Way, in all of its glory. Just look at those spiral arms. But how was this photo taken? Down here on earth we're stuck within the plane of our galaxy's disk. This is why the Milky Way appears as a band in the night sky: we're seeing our galaxy edge-on, like viewing a Frisbee from the side.

The Multiwavelength Atlas of Galaxies. The rest of the book is organized into sections according to galaxy type. Each section is prefaced with a brief introduction to the morphology and major characteristics of that form and then presents dozens of example galaxies. Over 250 clusters are individually highlighted in this collection.

Since the radio signature of our own Milky Way was detected in 1931, galaxies have been observed from ultra-high energy gamma rays to long wavelength radio waves, providing fundamental insights into their formation, evolution and structural components. Unveiling the secrets of some of the best-observed galaxies, this atlas contains over 250 full-color images spanning the whole electromagnetic spectrum. The accompanying text explains why we see the component stars, gas and dust through different radiation processes, and describes the telescopes and instruments used. This atlas is a valuable reference resource on galaxies for students seeking an overview of multiwavelength observations and what they tell us, and researchers needing detailed summaries of individual galaxies. An accompanying website, hosted by the author, contains slide shows of the galaxies covered in the book. This is available at www.cambridge.org/9780521620628.
