This is an excellent introduction to the subjects of gravitation and space-time structure. It discusses the foundations of Riemann geometry; the derivation of Einstein field equations; linearised theory; far fields and gravitational waves; the invariant characterisation of exact solutions; gravitational collapse; cosmology as well as alternative gravitational theories and the problem of quantum gravity.

..".not only an excellent textbook for an introductory course in relativity, but is also a quite good standard reference book for researchers in the field. Overall I would rate it among the top introductory books to the General Theory of Relativity." Jorge Pullin, SIAM ReviewReseña del editor:
This book is an excellent introduction to the subjects of gravitation and space-time structure. It presumes a good background in special relativity, electrodynamics, and classical mechanics. The book discusses the foundations of Riemannian geometry; the derivation of the Einstein field equations; linearised theory, far fields and gravitational waves; the invariant characterization of exact solutions; gravitational collapse; cosmology; and a final chapter deals with alternative gravitation theories and the problem of quantum gravity. This revised and correct edition brings the experimental evidence up to date. In addition, the sections on quantum gravity have been rewritten and enlarged, and now form a coherent introduction to this subject.
