Cambridge studies in advanced mathematics 31. This is the second of two volumes which have grown out of about seven years of graduate courses on various aspects of representation theory and cohomology of groups, given at Yale, Northwestern and Oxford. Contents include : Background material from algebraic topology, Cohomology of groups, Spectral sequences, The Evens norm map and the Steenrod algebra, Varieties for modules and multiple complexes, Group actions and the Steinberg module and Local coefficients on subgroup complexes. Chapter 5, in a sense, "is the central chapter of the entire two volumes, since it shows how inextricably intertwined representation theory and cohomology really are," (introduction).
