Alexander Zawaira and Gavin Hitchcock

  • A wealth of attractive, non-routine examples and problems, well-organised and graded, with fully worked solutions, illustrated by hundreds of diagrams.
  • Development of theory is consistently motivated by carefully selected "appetiser problems".
  • Can be used flexibly as a reference tool - finding problems to suit the topic, or topic to fit the problem.
