Conference paper
Part of the International Astronomical Union book series (IAUS, volume 175)


A workshop on the dynamics, emission and morphology associated with the highly collimated outflows seen in radio galaxies and quasars was held at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in September of 1995. Complete workshop proceedings will be published in the ASP Conference Series. This workshop review covers the theoretical developments and problems discussed at the workshop.
