Bibliogr. p. 106-111. Index

This survey is an introduction to quantum groups, braided categories, knots, three-manifolds and their invariants. The first two algebraic topics are intended as preparation for the last three topological topics. Of the book's nine chapters, the first four represent the algebraic side and the last five the topological side. Although it is concisely written, proofs are given. While only certain aspects of the algebraic aspects of quantum groups are given, namely those needed for the topological applications, the book could be used as a text for a course which intends to do the topological topics. There are examples and exercises, and some proofs would have to have details filled in by the instructor and students. For this purpose, and for a general reference on its topics, it seems an excellent source. (Zentralblatt)
