This handbook contains 54 articles by 60 contributors on various areas of graph theory. Each article consists, basically, of a sequence of definitions and facts followed by a bibliography. The shortest articles, one on de Bruijn graphs and sequences and one on the probabilistic method, are 8 pages long. The longest, on searching, is 32 pages long. Some of the articles could be read in conjunction with articles on similar or overlapping topics in [R. L. Graham, M. Grötschel and L. Lovász (eds.), Handbook of combinatorics. Vol. 1–2 (Amsterdam: Elsevier (North-Holland); Cambridge, MA: MIT Press) (1995, Zbl 0833.05001)].
