Canuto, V., 1977: Neutron stars: General review. Ann. New York Acad. Sci., 302, 514-527, doi:10.1111/j.1749-6632.1977.tb37069.x.

In this talk I shall review the work on neutron stars that has been performed in the last five or six years. The general trend of my talk will be that of stressing the fact that today we seem to have reached a satisfactory agreement among theorists, observers, and any linear combination of the two. This clearly is not intended to imply that we have solved all the problems concerning neutron stars and that nothing is left to study in the future. What I'm referring to is the apparent clarification of at least one problem, that of the maximum value for the mass ofa neutron star. In fact, I will show you in the rest of my talk that there is today general agreement on the value of the maximum mass for a neutron star, and that no great crisis seems to be lying ahead of us, unless evidently we are ready to say that the whole of nuclear physics is wrong.
