5.0 out of 5 stars Another superb RSC book
This book is a great introduction to explosives Chemistry with lots of worked calculations, combustion energy formulas and some history. A great book for professional chemists looking to broaden their understanding of the field.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so information
The explanaition of the book is right, but I think it should include more information about mechanisms, kinetics and synthetic methods

3.0 out of 5 stars It is a fairly good introductory text., 24 Sep 1999
By A Customer
This is a 173 page paper bound book published by the Royal Society of Chemistry and authored by Jacqueline Akhavan of Cranfield University, Royal Military College of Science, in the United Kingdom. The text partially fills a gap in the literature of explosives by providing more information on the chemistry of manufacturing and functioning of explosives. However, it still is more of a text about explosives than it is about the chemistry of explosives. In brief, it is a fairly good introductory text, but stops significantly short of being a great one....
