Chapter 1 provides summaries and highlights of the chapters that follow. In particular, ranks and cranks of partitions, the famous unpublished manuscript on the partition and tau-functions, and identities for the Rogers-Ramanujan functions are briefly discussed. Several mathematicians, whose collaborations and contributions to our volume are extremely important, are acknowledged and thanked.
