CHOICE Review

Kaesche (Univ. Erlangen-Nurenberg, Germany) extends four previous editions of his book (all in German) with almost 600 pages and 16 chapters, plus an appendix with excellent summaries of four topics, each of which could be expanded into a separate chapter (or even a book). The first five chapters are devoted to fundamental principles and theory, including electrode thermodynamics and kinetics, and the remaining chapters discuss various aspects of metallic corrosion in aqueous media. The fundamental material is excellent (although inclusion of a table of notations would help immensely, due to the proliferation of symbols and equations in the early chapters), and the applications chapters address mechanisms and examples of the most commonly encountered forms of corrosion. The author is highly qualified, with more than 40 years of experience in teaching and research in this field, and the book is well written, with liberal figures and tables and an extensive list of references with each chapter. A fundamental resource for those in practice or research in corrosion, this book could also serve as an excellent course resource for advanced studies in corrosion. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended.
