Twenty-five years have passed since the first edition of Astrophysical Concepts appeared. During this time astrophysics has undergone major revolutions. We have gained new perspectives on the Universe with the aid ofpowerful gamma-ray, X­ ray, and infrared telescopes, whose sensitivities could not have been imagined a quarter-century earlier.
