The title you are holding is the tenth in a very ambitious and interesting programme consisting of twelve volumes intended to provide the first comprehensive and detailed account of a technology that has shaped the whole human history. It has been conceived as a basic reference work, the essential stop tor anyone who seeks information on any aspect of the subject, so it is more concerned to be complete than to be original, the series takes full account of all the latest research and in certain areas will be publishing entirely new material. In the matter of interpretation care has been taken to avoid the old myths and to present only the most widely accepted modem viewpoints.
