    String Theory and M-Theory: A Modern Introduction (Hardcover)
    by Katrin Becker, Melanie Becker, John Schwarz
    729 pages
    Cambridge University Press; 1st edition (December 31, 2006)
    ISBN: 0521860695
    Amazon.com Sales Rank: #174,463 in Books
    Maybe I shouldn't call the next one a "new" release because it is listed here as a second edition. I am not sure of the facts concerning the first edition. In any case it is scheduled to come out by the end of the year and people evidently are advance-ordering it because it has a sales rank.

    Supersymmetry and String Theory: Beyond the Standard Model (Hardcover)
    by Michael Dine
    536 pages
    Cambridge University Press; 2nd edition (December 31, 2006)
    ISBN: 0521858410
    Amazon.com Sales Rank: #200,108 in Books

    Amazon has these books available for pre-order. To be shipped whenever they get the item in stock.

    Has anybody seen advance copies, or the earlier edition? Any comment?

    The Dine book may actually be a 1st edition, and the Amazon page simply mistaken. Dine's webpage indicates a January 2007 release.

    thx to Sean Carroll for alerting us to these forthcoming publications
