"The Evolving Universe" is a compendium of topics on and related to the large-scale structure of the Universe. These include galaxy luminosity functions and their dependence upon environment and galaxy type; clustering of galaxies; evolution of the clustering of galaxies; rich clusters of galaxies; superclusters of galaxies; and analyses of redshift surveys both old and new. With the impending commencement of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, presumably the definitive survey of nearby and moderate-redshift galaxies in our lifetime, the time is ripe for sober reflection of what has been recently accomplished and the directions that future research should take. The centerpiece of "The Evolving Universe" is the seminal review by A. Hamilton on linear-redshift distortions.Results are presented from the following surveys: The Norris Survey (Palomar), the Munster Redshift Project, the ESO Slice Project, Southern Sky Redshift Survey, CfA surveys and their extensions, Las Campanas Redshift Survey, CNOC, and CFRS. Theoretical analyses of luminosity functions, CMB-X Ray correlations, Cosmic String Models, Power Spectra, and quasar absorption line studies are also included. Scientists in the field as well as graduate students in astronomy will find "The Evolving Universe" to be a useful reference for current research as well as an explanation of the basic concepts of the field.
