presentations. However, the second part of the work can
be heartily recommended as an introduction to plastics
processing, particularly as the author has made full use of
his extensive practical experience.

Festkorperdoshetrie ionisierender Strahlung (Solid State
Dosimetry of Ionizing Radiation). By M. Frank and
W. Stolz. Verlag Chemie, Weinheim 1969. 1st Edit.,
283 pp., 97 illustrations, 28 tables, DM 48.-.
Ionizing radiation can induce numerous physical and
chemical modifications in solid bodies, and the nature
and the extent of these modifications enable conclusions
to be drawn about the radiation energy absorbed by the
solid body. In turn, this enables overall radiation dosage
This phenomenon has been much studied over the last
20 years particularly in solid state physics, resulting in a
large number of publications on this topic. The present
book by Frank and Stolz is the first monograph to be
published in German. After an introduction into the general
theoretical basis of dosimetry, the methods of integrating
solid state dosimetry are described. These include dosimetry by means of thermoluminescence, radiophotoluminescence, exoelectron emission, luminescence decay, coloration of crystals and plastics, and also by means of solid
state track detectors. The authors then deal with the
methods of scintillation dosimetry and of dosimetry
based on radiation-induced changes in conductivity. For
each method there is a description of the underlying
physical effects and the supporting mathematics, and
experimental details of the method are then given together
with practical applications. The rapidity with which this
field is developing makes a new and amplified edition of
this book desirable even at this stage. This is particularly
true of the very short chapter on dosimetry using exoelectron emission and solid state track detectors, since a large
number of publications on these topics have appeared in
the short time since the book was published.
The authors explain in their preface that the book is intended for all those concerned with the problems of dosage
measurement in radiation protection, radiation therapy,
and radiobiology, and also in work with accelerators,
reactors, and other units using radiation. The reviewer
would also recommend this book, because of its precise
mode of expression and the excellent presentation of the
facts, to all students who are thinking of working in one
or more of the fields discussed.

Infrared Spectroscopy. Experimental Methods and Techniques. By J . E. Stewart. Marcel Dekker Inc., New York
1970. 1st Edit., 636 pp., numerous illustrations, $ 36.50.
The perfection with which commercial IR instruments are
now manufactured in the widest possible range of types has
led to IR spectroscopy becoming a method in which the
user - particularly in the case of chemists - is as a rule interested only in the possible range of applications and not in
the constructional details. This situation is reflected in the
literature on the subject. It is all the more pleasant to find
in the present volume a very wide-ranging survey of the
fundamentals of the construction of modem IR instruments.
The book contains all the essential information on the basic
theory of the equipment and on the construction of IR
instruments (optical systems and their components, electronic components, detectors, etc.), and a wide range of
commercially available instruments is surveyed. In indindual chapters descriptions are given of interference spectroscopy, absorption, reflection, and emission measurement
methods, and also of the constructional basis for more
recent applications (study of samples under extreme conditions ere.). Each chapter has a bibliography, in some
cases very extensive. There is also an author index (7 pages)
and a subject index (13 pages).
The book is intended for the specialist concerned with
the instrumental problems of IR spectroscopy, and it
should prove an important source of information. It
should, however, be in the library of all institutions that
use IR spectroscopy in any form, so that anyone who
regards his spectroscope as more than just a “black box”
will have the opportunity of learning more about his
equipment as the need arises.
