Series  (Cambridge monographs on mathematical physics) 
Abstract Note  One appealing feature of string theory is that it provides a theory of quantum gravity. Gravity and Strings is a selfcontained, pedagogical exposition of this theory, its foundations and its basic results. In Part I, the foundations are traced back to the very early specialrelativistic field theories of gravity, showing how such theories lead to general relativity. Gauge theories of gravity are then discussed and used to introduce supergravity theories. In Part II, some of the most interesting solutions of general relativity and its generalizations are studied. The final Part presents and studies string theory from the effective action point of view, using the results found earlier in the book as background. This book will be useful as a reference book for graduate students and researchers, as well as a complementary textbook for courses on gravity, supergravity and string theory.
