Readers with any kind of an interest in astronomy will find this work fascinating, detailing as it does the proceedings of the symposium of the same name held in Japan in 2006. The symposium focused on mapping the interstellar media and other components in galactic disks, bulges, halos, and central regions of galaxies. Thanks to recent progress in observations using radio interferometers and optical/infrared telescopes in ground and space, our knowledge on structures of our Galaxy and nearby galaxies has been growing for the last decade.
This is a proceedings book based on review and contributed talks presented in a recent conference
Readers (professional astronomers, graduate students, and scientific journalists) can learn recent observational and theoretical progress in a field of our Galaxy and nearby galaxies
