This book covers the latest achievements of the Theory of Classes of Finite Groups. It introduces some unpublished and fundamental advances in this Theory and provides a new insight into some classic facts in this area. By gathering the research of many authors scattered in hundreds of papers the book contributes to the understanding of the structure of finite groups by adapting and extending the successful techniques of the Theory of Finite Soluble Groups.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The authors of the book under review aim to collect what can be said in the same way about finite groups, soluble or not. . The book is very helpful for the reader to obtain information on recent results, a valuable source for anybody doing research in this area. . The style is similar to that of the series of 'Ergebnisberichte' with informative proofs and some direct references to the literature." (H. Heineken, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2007 e)
