Choice Review

Copper, an ancient metal with modern, high technology applications, is described in this book, commissioned by the International Copper Association, Ltd. Joseph focuses on both technical and commercial aspects of this metal. There are six chapters; chapter 1 covers production, consumption, and international trade of copper. Metallurgical aspects; mechanical properties; corrosion behavior; products, including castings, sintered parts, and forgings; fabrication technologies, including casting, plastic deformation, powder metallurgy, electroplating, joining, finishing, and cladding; and applications of copper alloys to construction, electronics, machinery, and transportation are discussed in later chapters. The last chapter treats environmental aspects of copper processing and applications. Chapter references; two short appendixes; comprehensive subject index; useful alloy index. Fairly well written, with most illustrations of acceptable quality, and fairly well bound. A good resource for graduate students, faculty, researchers, and professionals involved with copper. Recommended for academic and industrial libraries. T. Z. Kattamis; University of Connecticut
