The authors have succeeded admirably, and these two volumes are a pleasure to read as well as being a valuable reference. [It] contains a valuable explanation of the relationship between representation theory and physics which every mathematician should be made aware of.
There are many helpful remarks and asides throughout the text as well as extensive exercises and historical discussions at the end of each chapter. These two volumes are a valuable addition to anyone's library as well as a pleasurable avenue to representation theory.
The work is a most authoritative account of representation theory and Mackey's theory; it will no doubt become the standard work of references in thefield for years to come.
