The second edition of Empirical Bayes Methods details are provided of the derivation and the performance of empirical Bayes rules for a variety of special models. Attention is given to the problem of assessing the goodness of an empirical Bayes estimator for a given set of prior data. A chapter is devoted to a discussion of alternatives to the empirical Bayes approach and there is also a chapter giving details of several actual applications of empirical Bayes method.
