Some 25 years after the birth of inflationary cosmology, this volume sets out to provide both an authoritative and pedagogical introduction and review of the current state of the field. Readers learn about the arguments supporting the many different scenarios of cosmic inflation. Articles are written by eminent scientists, many of whom have made pioneering contributions to the field of inflationary cosmology.

From the reviews:"The author takes us through the basics of the Big Bang theory and then into the idea of inflation-what it is and how it goes along with Big Bang theory. ... Anyone interested in the current state of research into the origins of our universe would be remiss in not reading this book. ... authors are very clear in explaining the problems with Big Bang theory (the horizon problem, magnetic monopoles, etc.) that are cleared-up with the inflation approach."
