This volume contains the proceedings of the twelfth triannual International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation, the premier conference for presentation and discussion of new ideas in relativity and cosmology. The volume will contain the invited talks as well as short reports on the parallel workshops that took place at the meeting. It will be essential reading for all research workers in relativity, cosmology and astrophysics.

"...a magnificent volume representing cutting edge ideas on General Relativity and Gravitation circa < 1989...Tenacious theoreticians and physics purists should definitely add this book to their bedside reading." Physics in Canada
