Modern Astrophysics


THE science of astrophysics has long since attained its majority. It no longer needs the protecting presence of some more ancient science. But it is at present almost devoid (at least in the English language) of that ordinary possession of a science-a literature. It needs its classics, its authoritative treatises, its workaday text-books, its popular expositions; its works of compilation and its works of criticism; its manuals of theory and its manuals of practice.
