The yearbook series Reviews in Modern Astronomy of the Astronomische Gesellschaft (AG) was established in 1988 in order to bring the scientific events of the meetings of the society to the attention of the worldwide astronomical community.
Reviews in Modern Astronomy is devoted exclusively to the invited Reviews, the Karl Schwarzschild Lectures, the Ludwig Biermann Award Lectures, and the Highlight contributions from leading scientists reporting on recent progress and scientific achievements at their respective research institutes.

Volume 15 continues the yearbook series with 14 contributions which were presented during JENAM 2001 - the Joint European and National Astronomical Meeting of the AG and the EAS on "Astronomy with Large Telescopes from Ground and Space" at Munich, Germany, from September 10 to 15, 2001.
