Published in 1985, Planetary Rings brought together scientist from a variety of disciplines to the study of planetary rings to provide a textbook for graduate students and researchers in related fields. It introduced newcomers to the subject and addressed issues at the forefront of ring research at the time.

At the time of it's publication, the editors wrote, "it is our hope that this book will become out-of-date quickly, that new observations and theoretical connections will continue to revolutionize our knowledge of planetary rings."
"This work gathers technical papers by 44 authors that cover all aspects of ring systems."—Astronomy Magazine

"The importance and timeliness of this compendium of review papers are highlighted by the range of the unsolved problems that are discussed in it."—Space Science
