The chapters in this volume cover all aspects of shock-compression science. Each is by a leading researcher in the field and provides a fundamental review as well as an introduction to current research. An extensive chronological bibliography and an annotated bibliography of the current literature will make this a particularly useful reference. Problems at the ends of the chapters enhance the usefulness of the book as a text. (A solutions manual is available from the editors)
