These two volumes contain survey papers given at the 1991 international symposium on geometric group theory, and they represent some of the latest thinking in this area. Many of the world's leading figures in this field attended the conference, and their contributions cover a wide diversity of topics. Volume I contains reviews of such subjects as isoperimetric and isodiametric functions, geometric invariants of a groups, Brick's quasi-simple filtrations for groups and 3-manifolds, string rewriting, and algebraic proof of the torus theorem, the classification of groups acting freely on R-trees, and much more. Volume II consists solely of a ground breaking paper by M. Gromov on finitely generated groups.
For anyone whose interest lies in the interplay between groups and geometry, these books will be an essential addition to their library.
