Twenty-five years ago, Michel Green, John Schwarz and Edward Witten wrote two volumes on string theory. Published at the height of the first revolution in string theory, these books went on to define the field. The subject is now undergoing a second revolution following numerous developments and the systematic exposition of superstring theory presented in these volumes is just as relevant today as when first published. Volume 2 is concerned with the evaluation of one-loop amplitudes, the study of anomalies and phenomenology. It examines the low energy effective field theory analysis of anomalies, the emergence of the gauge groups E8 x E8 and SO(32) and the four-dimensional physics that…
