Explosives: their Manufacture, Properties, Tests and History

    Article metrics

    Abstract

    IT is twenty years since any really important and comprehensive book on the subject of Explosives has been published in England, and the time was therefore ripe for a work that should bring the subject up to date and present it as a whole. In doing this, however, it is obvious that in such a wide and highly specialised field of work it is necessary to exercise the greatest care in selection and arrangement in order to avoid undue bulk of matter and at the same time to present the subject in the clearest possible way. This is the task that Mr. Arthur Marshall has set himself in “Explosives, their Manufacture, Properties, Tests and History' and the author has succeeded in giving us a most valuable book, which will be welcomed by all workers on the subject.

    Explosives: their Manufacture, Properties, Tests and History.

    By A. Marshall. Pp. xv + 624. (London: J. and A. Churchill, 1915.) Price 24s. net.
