Synopsis: Almost two decades after the appearance of most of the classical texts on the theory, this fresh introduction offers a reassessment of the main fields, methods and results today. Viewed as a branch of pure mathematics, the theory of finite graphs is developed as a coherent subject in its own right, with its own unifying questions and methods. The book thus seeks to complement, not replace, the existing, more algorithmic treatments, and can be used at various levels. It contains all the standard material for a first undergraduate course, complete with detailed proofs and numerous illustrations. While, for graduates, the text offers proofs of several more advanced results, most of which appear in a book for the first time. These proofs are described with as much care and detail as their simpler counterparts, often with an informal discussion of their underlying ideas complementing their rigorous step-by-step account. Finally, to the professional mathematician, the book affords an overview of graph theory as it stands today: with its typical questions and methods, its classic results, and some of those developments that have made it such an exciting area in recent years.

From the Back Cover: This standard textbook of modern graph theory, now in its fourth edition, combines the authority of a classic with the engaging freshness of style that is the hallmark of active mathematics. It covers the core material of the subject with concise yet reliably complete proofs, while offering glimpses of more advanced methods in each field by one or two deeper results, again with proofs given in full detail. The book can be used as a reliable text for an introductory course, as a graduate text, and for self-study. From the reviews: This outstanding book cannot be substituted with any other book on the present textbook market. It has every chance of becoming the standard textbook for graph theory." Acta Scientiarum Mathematiciarum "The book has received a very enthusiastic reception, which it amply deserves. A masterly elucidation of modern graph theory." Bulletin of the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications "Succeeds dramatically ... a hell of a good book." MAA Reviews "A highlight of the book is what is by far the best account in print of the Seymour-Robertson theory of graph minors." Mathematika " ... like listening to someone explain mathematics." Bulletin of the AMS
