The second part of this important historical volume, containing selected papers by the celebrated Armenian astronomer Victor A. Ambartsumian, includes a number of papers describing his discovery of stellar associations as a dynamical entity. Although origionally treated with Skepticism by fellow astronomers this discovery has had far reaching implications in its field. The second section of the book contains ground-breaking papers on the evolution of galaxies and the violent activity within them, which are early presentations of ideas now central to the study of astronomy and astrophysics. The final section contains two papers about the philiosophy of astronomy and Ambartsumian's ideas about how the field would develop. The selected works presented in this two-part volume give a fascinating insight into the development of this area of research over the last century, under the influence of one of the great pioneering figures, and it will be an invaluable reference source for astronomers and astrophysicists all over the world.
