Emission line stars are attractive to many people because of their spectacular phenomena and their amazing varieties and variability. This book offers general information on emission line stars, starting from a brief introduction to stellar astrophysics and then moving to a broad overview of emission line stars including early and late type stars as well as pre-main sequence stars.
Table of Contents

From the reviews: "The authors set out to give particular attention to those stars that display strong emission lines in the optical region ... . Throughout we get interesting case histories and copious references from the literature. ... will be of value to the research community as well as to students. ... this should prove to be a useful volume where stellar astrophysics is taught or practised." (David Stickland, The Observatory, Vol. 128 (1203), 2008) "This text presents a predominantly theoretical look at emission-line stars, stars with strong emission lines in their optical spectra. Whilst presented at an accessible level suitable for advanced undergraduates and above, it lacks nothing in terms of detail and mathematical treatment. ... this book provides a solid overview for those in the field." (Contemporary Physics, Vol. 51 (6), 2010)
