A Review of The Analysis of Explosives
The authors present a monograph to serve as a reference book for chemists in analytical and forensic science laboratories and as a textbook for graduate students studying analytical chemistry and the forensic sciences. This text is truly needed and welcomed by explosives chemists, especially those who work in the forensic sciences. While the book is partially intended as a text for graduate students, the reviewers believe that junior and senior level undergraduate students could also benefit significantly from the subject material. Overall, the theory, subject matter, references, and discussion of methods and instrumental techniques are comprehensive and well presented and should be easily understood by advanced forensic and graduate chemistry students.
