Review:

Praise for the Previous Edition

"Now in its fifth edition, its success as a textbook is indicative of its quality and its clarity of presentation. ... The authors also describe the fascinating history behind some of the key problems in graph theory and, to a lesser extent, their applications. This book describes the key concepts you need to get started in graph theory. ... It provides all you might need to know about graph embeddings and graph colorings. Moreover, it analyzes many other topics that more general discrete mathematics monographs do not always cover, such as network flows, minimum cuts, matchings, factorization, decomposition, and even extremal graph theory. ... This thorough textbook includes hundreds of exercises at the end of each section. Hints and solutions for odd-numbered exercises are included in the appendix, making it especially suitable for self-learning."
―Fernando Berzal, Computing Reviews, September 2011

"As with the earlier editions, the current text emphasizes clear exposition, well-written proofs, and many original and innovative exercises of varying difficulty and challenge. ... The fifth edition continues and extends these fine traditions."
―Arthur T. White, Zentralblatt MATH 1211
