Das Werk ist Teil der Reihe:
This book treats Jacques Tit's beautiful theory of buildings, making that theory accessible to readers with minimal background. It covers all three approaches to buildings, so that the reader can choose to concentrate on one particular approach. Beginners can use parts of the new book as a friendly introduction to buildings, but the book also contains valuable material for the active researcher.

This book is suitable as a textbook, with many exercises, and it may also be used for self-study.
