    1. The Expansion of the Universe
    2. The Cosmic Microwave Radiation Background
    3. The Early Universe
    4. Inflation
    5. General Theory of Cosmological Fluctuations
    6. Evolution of Cosmological Fluctuations
    7. Anisotropies in the Microwave Sky
    8. The Growth of Structure
    9. Gravitational Lensing
    10. Fluctuations from Inflation
    A. Some Useful Numbers
    B. Review of General Relativity
    C. Energy Transfer Between Radiation and Electrons
    D. The Ergodic Theorem
    E. Gaussian Distributions
    F. Newtonian Cosmology
    G. Photon Polarization
    H. The Relativistic Boltzmann Equation
    Glossary of Symbols
    Assorted Problems

    So... it looks like it's more "Cosmology" rather than "Gravitation".

    Thanks for the link.

    Makes sense as that was the most out of date section of the older text.

    New book

    This is definitely a new book, not a new edition of the 1972 classic.

    In the table of contents quoted by Robphy, "Fluctuations from Inflation" stood out as an obviously recent topic!

    American Amazon shows it scheduled for June. Slowpokes.

    I'd order from the UK if, as John Stewart says, the dollar weren't worth half an English Pound...of ****.
