This text is a compendium of topics on and related to the large-scale structure of the Universe. These include galaxy luminosity functions and their dependence upon environment and galaxy type; clustering of galaxies; evolution of the clustering of galaxies; rich clusters of galaxies; superclusters of galaxies; and analyses of redshift surveys both old and new. The centerpiece of the text is the seminal review on linear-redshift distortions. Results are presented from the following surveys: The Norris Survey (Palomar); the Munster Redshift Project; the ESO Slice Project; Southern Sky Redshift Survey; CfA surveys and their extensions; Las Campanas Redshift Survey, CNOC, and CFRS. Theoretical analyses of luminosity functions, CMB-X Ray correlations, Cosmic String Models, Power Spectra, and quasar absorption line studies are also included.
