520    Rob Clifton was one of the most brilliant and productive 
       researchers in the foundations and philosophy of quantum 
       theory; he died tragically at the age of 38. Jeremy 
       Butterfield and Hans Halvorson present fourteen of his 
       finest papers, all of which combine exciting philosophical
       discussion with rigorous mathematical results. Many of 
       these papers break wholly new ground, either conceptually 
       or technically. Others resolve a vague controversy into a 
       precise technical problem, which is then solved; still 
       others solve an open problem that had been in the air for 
       some time. All of them show scientific and philosophical 
       creativity of a high order, genuinely among the very best 
       work in the field. The papers are grouped into four parts.
       First come four papers about the modal interpretation of 
       quantum mechanics. Part II comprises three papers on the 
       foundations of algebraic quantum field theory, with an 
       emphasis on entanglement and nonlocality. The two papers 
       in Part III concern the concept of a particle in 
       relativistic quantum theories. One paper analyses 
       localization; the other analyses the Unruh effect (Rindler
       quanta) using the algebraic approach to quantum theory.; 
       Finally, Part IV contains striking new results about such 
       central issues as complementarity, Bohr's reply to the EPR
       argument, and no hidden variables theorems; and ends with 
       a philosophical survey of the field of quantum 
       information. The volume includes a full bibliography of 
       Clifton's publications. "Quantum Entanglements" offers 
       inspiration and substantial reward to graduates and 
       professionals in the foundations of physics, with a 
       background in philosophy, physics, or mathematics.
