This revised edition describes our current understanding of the sun –– from its deepest interior, via the layers of the directly observable atmosphere to the solar wind, right up to its farthest extension into interstellar space. It includes a comprehensive account of the history of solar astrophysics, and the evolution of solar instruments. This account now includes the most up– to–date implementation of modern solar instruments in facilities on the ground and in space. The revised book now also provides an overview of recent results on "space weather" and on sun – climate relations, both of which are fields of increasing societal importance.
