This textbook is based on the authors' market leading data structures books (in Java and C++) and offers a comprehensive, definitive introduction to data structures in Python by authoritative authors. Python has been growing rapidly as the language for CS1, (including increases of 88%, 45%, and 49% in the last three years, per TWM.) The lack of texts and lack of consensus in departments have prevented wide adoption in CS2 so far, however, this is changing as more schools see how well Python is working in CS1 and more texts become available.
