String Theory and M-Theory: A Modern Introduction (Hardcover)
by Katrin Becker, Melanie Becker, John Schwarz
$80.00 729 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. http://www.amazon.com/Supersymmetry...58410/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_b/002-1987816-1968818 Supersymmetry and String Theory: Beyond the Standard Model (Hardcover) by Michael Dine$80.00

=========================

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
