From the Back Cover:

This volume critically surveys our present knowledge of the origin, composition, and evolution of planetary atmospheres, beginning with the presolar nebula and culminating with the present states and evolutionary trends of these atmospheres. The authors give special emphasis to the comparative study of Venus, Earth, and Mars as examples of evolving atmospheres. They cover in detail processes on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Titan, and lo and review evidence on the abundance, distribution, and behavior of the volatile elements in asteroids and in planetary satellite systems.
