In this book, Arp presents the original observations and fundamental data on quasars and galaxies, and explains why he has concluded that: far from being the most distant objects in the universe, quasars are associated in space with relatively nearby galaxies- quasars enormous redshifts do not arise from the expansion of the universe, but rather are intrinsic properties of the quasars themselves- many galaxies show redshift anomalies related to quasars redshifts- quasars and galaxies have an origin far different from that assumed in the standard big-bang model of the universe- many astronomers, despite the accumulation of compelling evidence, defend what Arp believes is a fundamentally incorrect assumption about cosmic objects.
