Ebooks (Open Access) Read Online
This sourcebook brought together our knowledge about asteroids, based on a gather during the week of March 8-11, 1988 with move than 160 scientists from 14 countries who gathered in Tucson for the Asteroids II conference.

Asteroids II is not a sequel, per se, to the 1979 book Asteroids. It offered a fresh treatment intended to stand on its own as a complete description of the current understanding of the field. It was published in December 1989. The work showcased a large international collaboration, a sign of an active and growing discipline.
"Asteroids II will have some bearing on meteorite research, and will help to clarify our understanding of the many specimens held in both private and public collections throughout the world. I commend the book without reservation."—J.P. Lavielle Impact

"This monograph will become indispensable for everybody engaged in the rapidly expanding asteroid research or interested in its current state."—Space Science Reviews

"This is an excellent introduction to the subject, recommended for schools with astronomy programs."—Academic Library Review
