## Main Question or Discussion Point

Some of the draft chapters of this book are already on Arxiv. The book is scheduled to appear May 2011.

http://www.cambridge.org/uk/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521114400

Many if not all of these were papers presented in a conference in Capetown honoring George Ellis on his 70th birthday. He wanted to bring together different QG research communities. Cambridge University Press was one of the sponsors of the conference and decided to collect the papers into a book. (It's possible there will be a second volume, since more papers were presented than are shown in this listing of the chapters.)

In this list of the book's chapters, I will highlight the ones which I either found or remember already having seen on Arxiv. Nearly the whole book is available in draft chapter version online! Just look the blue papers up on Arxiv by author and a word or two from the title.
