This is a lucid and authoritative exposition of the mathematical theory of hyperbolic system laws. The second edition contains a new chapter recounting exciting recent developments on the vanishing viscosity method. Numerous new sections introduce newly derived results. From the reviews: "The author is known as one of the leading experts in the field. His masterly written book is, surely, the most complete exposition in the subject of conservations laws." --Zentralblatt MATH
