Sir David Cox is one of the seminal statistical thinkers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In this selection of his work, Professor Cox reviews his most influential and interesting papers published before 1993. Each paper is the subject of a candid commentary written especially for this collection. In these he describes the context in which the papers arose and their subsequent influence. He also identifies avenues for future research. Organised in two volumes and grouped by theme, the papers and commentaries provide excellent coverage of many of the most significant advances in statistics in recent times. But this collection is more than a record of scientific achievement. Professor Cox's writing is characterised by clarity and wit, so these volumes can be read as much for enjoyment as for edification.

'... any statistician ... should be aware of the contents of the selected papers of Sir David Cox and he or she would certainly value their own copy.' Kwantitatieve Methoden
"Professors Hand and Herzberg should be thanked for the efforts which have culminated with the publication of these two volumes. The work presents eighty-six of David Cox's papers, selected from those published up to the end of 1993. Also included is a complete list of David Cox's publications through 2004. There can be little doubt that the papers of David Cox provide a rich vein of statistical insight and their availability, in a very convenient form, will be very much appreciated by current and future statistical researchers...What makes this work of special value is David Cox's willingness to contribute commentaries on the papers...the task of providing the commentaries has been taken seriously and provides valuable additional insight and perspective on the papers, as well as some personal recollections."
