The first book published in the Beer and Johnston Series, Mechanics for Engineers: Statics is a scalar-based introductory statics text, ideally suited for engineering technology programs, providing first-rate treatment of rigid bodies without vector mechanics. This new edition provides an extensive selection of new problems and end-of-chapter summaries. The text brings the careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail that have made Beer and Johnston texts the standard for excellence in engineering mechanics education.

Born in Philadelphia, Russ holds a B.S. degree in civil engineering from the University of Delaware and an Sc.D. degree in the field of structural engineering from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He taught at Lehigh University and Worchester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) before joining the faculty of the University of Connecticut where he held the position of Chairman of the Civil Engineering Department and taught for twenty-six years. In 1991 Russ received the Outstanding Civil Engineer Award from the Connecticut Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
