Its detailed presentation makes it suitable for graduate students as well as specialists. Richard Weiss begins with an introduction to Coxeter groups and goes on to present basic properties of arbitrary buildings before specializing to the spherical case. Buildings are described throughout in the language of graph theory.

"The Structure of Spherical Buildings" includes a reworking of the proof of Jacques Tits's Theorem 4.1.2. upon which Tits's classification of thick irreducible spherical buildings of rank at least three is based. In fact, this is the first book to include a proof of this famous result since its original publication. Theorem 4.1.2 is followed by a systematic study of the structure of spherical buildings and their automorphism groups based on the Moufang property.
