Each of the many different aspects of HVC research is addressed by one of the experts in that subfield.

These include a historical overview of HVC research and analyses of the structure and kinematics of HVCs. Separate chapters address the intermediate-velocity clouds, the Magellanic Stream, and neutral hydrogen HVCs discovered in external galaxies. Reviews are presented of the Ha emission and of optical and UV absorption-line studies, followed by discussions of the hot Galactic Halo and of the interactions between HVCs and their surroundings. Four chapters summarize the ideas about the origin of the high-velocity gas, with detailed discussions of connections between HVCs and the Galactic Fountain, tidally-stripped material, and remnants of the Milky Ways formation.

A chapter outlining what we do not know completes the book. The book comes at a time when knowledge and understanding of the HVCs are making rapid progress, owing to technological, observational, and theoretical developments.
