` The volume provides an excellent introduction to many aspects of graphs and order. On the whole, the papers are well written and they provide a huge amount of information. Certainly I am glad to have Graphs and Order now as part of my library and suggest that it would provide an excellent source and reference that ought to find its way into at least every departmental library.
