    THIS volume has been specially prepared for the use of first year students in universities and for pupils reading for scholarships in the higher divisions of schools. It is thus a companion volume to the author's books on dynamics and statics, which have been published in recent years. The course well covers the academic requirements in the subject, and includes some simple applications of the metacentre, together with a brief discussion on capillarity. A working knowledge of the calculus is assumed, and there are numerous exercises provided for the student, many of which are taken from Cambridge examination papers. Answers to these are given where necessary. The text is illustrated with clearly drawn diagrams and elegantly worked-out examples. The book is admirably suited to its purpose.
