This book is formed by a well-planned collection of articles written by a group of authors of international distinction drawn almost equally from industry and academia. Every student of physical metalurgy would gain by reading the opening chapter alone, in which Dr. Staley from Alcoa gives a masterly overview of the development of wrought aluminum alloys, emphasising how both science and experience guide this process by enlightened empiricism. The typical contemporary uses which are quoted for the particular alloys are an added bonus to the reader. This considerable volume is strongly commended.
