----- From a review of the first edition: "Altogether the book gives a comprehensive introduction to graphs, their theory and their application...The use of the text is optimized when the exercises are solved.

This is followed by two chapters on planar graphs and colouring, with special reference to the four-colour theorem. The next chapter deals with transversal theory and connectivity, with applications to network flows.

Stimulating and accessible, this undergraduate-level text covers basic graph theory, colorings of graphs, circuits and cycles, labeling graphs, drawings of graphs, measurements of closeness to planarity, graphs on surfaces, and applications ...
