This graduate text, and Cooper's companion introductory text ('Introduction to the Technology of Explosives'), serve the same markets as the successful explosives reference by Meyer, now in its 4th edition. VCH also published the International Journal of Propellants, Explosives, and Pyrotechnics. The resulting package would give VCH the major presence in the field. This text presents the basic technologies used in the engineering of explosives and explosive systems, i.e., chemistry, burning, detonation, shock waves, initiation theories, scaling. The book is written for upper-division undergraduate or graduate-level scientists and engineers, and assumes a good grasp of basic physics, chemistry, mechanics and mathematic through calculus. It is based on lecture notes used for graduate courses at the Dept. of Energy Laboratories, and could serve as a core text for a course at schools of mining or military engineering. The intent of the book is to provide the engineer or scientist in the field with an understanding of the phenomena involved and the engineering tools needed to solve/ design/ analyze a broad range of real problems.

Paul Cooper is Chair Professor of Special Education at the Hong Kong Institute of Educatiion, and Visiting Professor at the University of Malta.nbsp; His former Professor of Education at the University of Leicester, and has held academic posts at Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge Universities. His main interests are interventions for Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties and mental health in schools, and applications of the biopsychosocial approach to these issues.nbsp; He is Vice president of the Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties Association; Founding co-Chair of the European network for Social Emotional Competence, and Co-editor of the International Journal of Emotional Education.
