We have drawn for our presentation on the following graduate texts:
J. Binney & S. Tremaine, 1987, Galactic Dynamics (Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey), on the dynamics of galaxies and star clusters; F. Combes, P. Boissé, A. Mazure, & A. Blanchard, Galaxies and Cosmology, 2nd edition (English translation, 2002; Springer, Heidelberg, Germany), covering similar ground to our text; and J. Binney & M. Merrifield, 1998, Galactic Astronomy, 3rd edition (Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey), which gives a comprehensive review of observations of our Galaxy and others.
On a similar level to this book, see S. Phillipps, 2005, The Structure and Evolution of Galaxies Wiley, Chichester, UK) and P. Schneider, Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology: An Introduction (English translation, 2006; Springer, Heidelberg/Berlin, Germany).
At a more elementary level, see M. H. Jones & R. J. Lambourne (eds.), 2003, An Introduction to Galaxies and Cosmology (Cambridge University Press and the Open University, Cambridge, UK).
