The author has included a lengthy introduction to set the scene for non-specialists who want an overview of the field, its history and its applications. The rest of the book consists of three parts: general theory, group rings of p-groups and general finite groups. The book will be welcomed by specialists in K- and L-theory and by algebraists in general as a state-of-the art survey of the area. 0aWhitehead groups 0aFinite groups 0aInduction (Mathematics)08iPrint version: z9780521336468 dCambridge 0aLondon Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series ;vno. 132.40uhttp://dx.doi.org/10.1017/CBO9780511600654
