Developments in High Temperature Corrosion and Protection of Materials

High temperature corrosion is a phenomenon that occurs in components that operate at very high temperatures, such as gas turbines, jet engines and industrial plants. Engineers are constantly striving to understand and prevent this type of corrosion. This book examines the latest developments in the understanding of high temperature corrosion processes and protective oxide scales and coatings. Part one looks at high temperature corros...

Slaves to Fashion: Poverty and Abuse in the New Sweatshops

This is the most comprehensive and up to date book I know of about sweatshops in the U.S. and worldwide. It is must reading for anti-sweatshop activists and anyone else interested in this ugly seamy side of globalized capitalism. Ross endorses the U.S. Government Accounting Office's definition of a sweatshop as "a business that regularly violates both wage or child labor and safety or health laws." Employing that definition, he concl...

Dudley's Handbook of Practical Gear Design and Manufacture (2nd Edition)

I bought my 1st Dudley's Gear Handbook in 1989. This is the same one - updated. I like the fact that it now includes metric-sized eqts and several nice updates. But I was disappointed that there was not a lot of additional material. It also lacks for any documentation in PM or plastics. The book is a fresh update - but it is not expanded. If you have an older 2nd edition it is not worth upgrading. However, if you need the book - it i...
