On the occasion of the retirement of Ulrich Schwarz, a symposium was held in Groningen in May of 1996, celebrating his contributions to the study of the int- stellar medium, including his work on the high-velocity clouds. The coming together of many specialists in the latter ?eld prompted the idea of compiling a book c- taining their contributions, and summarizing the status of our understanding of the high-velocity cloud phenomenon. This seemed especially worthwhile at the time, since many exciting developments were taking place. After the discovery of some H i clouds with high velocities, about 40 years ago, the subject had been dominated by 21-cm observations of H i emission. Starting in the mid-1980s much progress was being made because of the availability of new instruments, such as large ground-based optical telescopes and UV observatories in space. The connections between the work on high-velocity clouds and other studies of the properties of the (hot) interstellar medium also became clearer.... 136 Hambly, N.C., Dufton, P.L., Keenan, F.P., Rolleston, W.R.J., Howarth, I.D, Irwin, M.J. 1994, Aaamp;A, 285, 716 Haynes, ... 84, The Large-scale Characteristics of the Galaxy (Dordrecht: Reidel), 547 Mathewson, D.S., Wayte, S.R., Ford, V.L., anbsp;...
