In recent years, superstring theory has emerged as a promising approach to reconciling general relativity with quantum mechanics and unifying the fundamental interactions. Problems that have seemed insuperable in previous approaches take on a totally new character in the context of superstring theory, and some of them have been overcome. Interest in the subject has greatly increased following a succession of exciting recent developments. This two-volume book attempts to meet the need for a systematic exposition of superstring theory and its applications accessible to as wide an audience as possible.

Originally published at the height of the first revolution in string theory, these two volumes went on to define the field. Volume 2 focuses on one-loop amplitudes, anomalies and phenomenology. Featuring a new Preface, this book is invaluable for graduate students and researchers in high energy physics and astrophysics.About the Author:
