The book can be used in 'at least three ways. One can teach a onesemester course
from it, choosing the most general topics. One can alson use the book for a two-semester course, teaching most of the text and exploring the supplementary material that is given in form of exercises.If one has already taught a one-semester course using a general Combi-natorics textbook and wants to follow up with a second semester that focuses on enumeration, one may use the last six chapters of this book.The book is also useful for teaching an introductory course for graduate students who do not have solid background in Combinatorics.
There are several topics here that are discussed in detail in an under-graduate textbook for a first time, such as acyclic and parking functions, unimodality, log-concavity, the real zeros property, and magic squares.Therefore, we hope the book will provide a useful reference material for students interested in these topics.

Mikl6s B6na has done a masterful job of bringing an overview of all of enumerativecombinatorics within reach of undergraduates. The two fundamental themes ofbijective proofs and generating functions, together with their intimate connections, recur constantly. A wide selection of topics, including several never appearing beforein a textbook, are included that give an idea of the vast range of enumerativecombinatorics. In particular, for those with sufficient background in undergraduatelinear algebra and abstract algebra there are many tantalizing hints of the fruitfulconnection between enumerative combinatorics and algebra that plays a central rolein the subject of algebraic combinatorics.
